Do I report my child's SSA- 1099 and 1099 int if he got $11,000 in benefits and $500 in interest?

No. The $500 interest is not enough to trigger filing (it would take $1050).

Social security payments to children.

 If the Social Security (SS) payments, including SS disability, were under his/her SS number (as they usually are), it does not get reported on your return. If it does need to be reported, it would go on his/her individual return. If that was his/her only income, it does not get reported at all. She does not need to file a tax return. 

SS is only taxable & reportable when added to sufficient other income. Social security only  becomes taxable, when his income, including 1/2 his social security, reaches $25,000
