The SSA require that Social Security benefits be used for the person that is eligible to receive them and in some instances for a dependent spouse and minor children.
SS benefits for minors are due to the loss of a parent 'Survivor benefits'.
The general criteria is that such monies are to be used for basic necessities, food, clothing, shelter, education, in some cases a reasonable amount of spending money for an older child, etc. with any remainder placed in a savings account for the minor child.
It would be extremely difficult to prove that benefits for a minor are being misused unless an investigation by a social service agency or other authority proved that said minor child was living in an unsuitable environment and had been subjected to neglect and/or abuse.
If it is your account, you can do anything you want with it. If you are the custodian for another person's check, the money has to be spent for that person. The guidelines for what benefits another are pretty liberal. If the other person is a minor and you want to use his money to take him and the family to an amusement park, that would be fine. You do have to keep a record of how you spend the money if you are the custodian, but that is pretty simple. Social Security gives you a form. The local Social Security office can provide answers to your specific questions.
In the 2012/13 financial year, the United Kingdom government will spend more money on social security than on education or policing.Excluding health expenditure (which is treated separately by the UK), the Government will spend £240billion (36.1% of the total budget) on social security.

Social security is like a trust fund. You save money while you work and then you can spend it while you are in retirement. It also gives the Republicans something to argue about.
You can use it to pay off bills. Usually people like to spend there social security benefits on mortgages and bills. I would spend it on groceries or necessities.

It probably would affect GDP because people getting social security would have more money to spend so they would be able to buy more goods and services. Have a look at GDP in Wikipedia for more information.

Social Security benefits are paid in arrears. That is, benefits are paid on the 1st of the month AFTER the beneficiary has earned them by living the previous month. The requirement is a person must live the entire month to earn the benefit. For instance, if one dies during the month of September - even September 30th - then no benefit should be paid on October 1st. If a beneficiary dies, you should notify the Social Security Administration immediately, as well as any other federal retirement office which pays retirement annuities. If a check is sent, don't cash it but return it. If money is directly deposited in the bank, don't spend it as it will be transferred back to the government. You should first call (800) 772-1213 and speak with a Social Security agent for more information.

Social Security is a Bankrupted Government Program that was started with good intentions of providing some (not all) retirement money to the American workers once they retired from the work force.It has since been looted by congress, to pay for the many other 'handout' programs they have in place today and many other inappropriate things they have chosen to spend your money on.
Social security payments have been late the last several months because the federal government is inefficient and punitive. Obama is upset that so many people oppose the HUGE deficits his administration has caused, so he has ordered the withholding or delay of vital services, while continuing to spend billions on non-essentials.
