A lump sum payment would be shown in box 3 on your SSA-1099.  If there is not a lump sum payment shown then answer the question being asked as NO.

You do not enter a dependent's Social Security benefits on your tax return.  If the dependent has no other income then they do not report the benefits received on a tax return.
