It does not count as income for credits etc. You must claim your social security amount into your return since you are filing a tax return. The program will determine if your Social Security is tax or not depending on your other income etc.
The income you earned from working may count for dependent/child-related credits--but not the SS income.
ALL of your income must be entered.
Do not try to enter your SSA1099 or RR1099RB as a W-2. Go to Federal> Wages & Income>>Retirement Plans and Social Security (SSA1099 and 1099RRB) to enter your SSA1099.
Look at your 2019 Form 1040 to see the child-related credits you received
Child Tax Credit line 13a
Credit for Other Dependents line 13a
Earned Income Credit line 18a
Additional Child Tax Credit line 18b
Child and Dependent Care Credit line 18d
