No, you are not required to include your daughters SS on your tax return.
The only thing that you would need to track is the amount provided for her support through these payments and the amount you provide for her support.
Even though the amount she receives is not taxable it is considered as provided by her for her support. You would need to provide more than that to be able to claim her as a dependent.
I will give you a worksheet that you can use that will make this easier. You do not file the worksheet with your return it is just for you to use to determine that you pay more for her support .
