depends on several things, You will need to check with the Social secerity office in your area to find out if your child can get a check. REMEMBER that if your child is able to get a check then it will not be a large amount.
Baby Boomers will retire at a faster rate than the younger generation of Americans will be able to work and put some money into the social security system. Because the availability of Americans to pay their share in the Social Security Program will decrease while the population of Americans who have already paid their share to the Social Security Program and now benefit from the program will increases. In other words: There might be more "need" and less who are able to "help" in the years to come.
Social security is basically when the government takes a certain percentage of money from the working generation and gives it to the retired generation. When the working generation become retired, they receive social security. Social security started after the Great Depression, when the government needed to make sure that people had money stored away to live after they stopped working. People get certain amounts of social security depending on how much they and their spouses worked as young people, as well as what jobs and how much they gave to social security. The current problem with social security is that the baby boomers are now becoming retired, and there are more of them than the current generation of working people. There is not enough money to support these retiring people, and unless the government subsidies social security or takes other measures, it is likely to fall apart before people currently in their 30s and 40s become retired. So basically, the idea of how social security works is that you put away money and you will get that money when you retire.
