Unfortunately, you need to be at least age 62 to take your social security benefit. Your dependent child can receive up to a 50% benefit based on your SSA record (but only if you are currently receiving your benefit which requires you to be at least age 62 or disabled). Your child might be able to qualify under a spouse or a deceased spouse.
