Expert:  Christopher B, Esq. replied 4 months ago.

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.

Her mother is receiving so for disability and her daughter is not receiving half
Expert:  Christopher B, Esq. replied 4 months ago.

She has to be (1) unmarried (2) under age 18 or (3) under age 19 and still in high school. If that is the case, the child should be eligible for a benefit. See link: https://www.ssa.gov/planners/retire/yourchildren.html
