Depending on your age and other factors, your mother may be able you.  

You (your mother) can claim a child (you), relative, friend, or fiancé (etc.) as a dependent on your 2019 taxes as long as they meet the following requirements:

 

Qualifying child

  • They're related to you.
  • They aren't claimed as a dependent by someone else.
  • They're a U.S. citizen, resident alien, national, or a Canadian or Mexican resident.
  • They aren’t filing a joint return with their spouse.
  • They're under the age of 19 (or 24 for full-time students).
    • No age limit for permanently and totally disabled children.
  • They lived with you for more than half the year (exceptions apply).
  • They didn't provide more than half of their own support for the year.

Qualifying relative

  • They don't have to be related to you (despite the name).
  • They aren't claimed as a dependent by someone else.
  • They're a U.S. citizen, resident alien, national, or a Canadian or Mexican resident.
  • They aren’t filing a joint return with their spouse.
  • They lived with you the entire year.
  • They made less than $4,200 in 2019.
  • You provided more than half of their financial support.

When you add someone as a dependent, we'll ask a series of questions to make sure you can claim them. There may be other tax benefits you can get when you claim a dependent.

Your question is not clear.  Do you mean YOU are a parent with a dependent child?  And you received Social Security disability income?    And you mentioned having a child.  You are not eligible for any of the child-related credits like earned income credit or child tax credit unless you had some income earned from working.  If you worked for any part of the year, then enter that earned income on your tax return along with the SSA1099 you received.
