My 14 year old sister lives with me full time since September. I am legal guardian have collected SS benefits for her those 3 months. Someone else claimed her on their taxes, do I have to claim the whole years SS benefits or just the 3 months.

If the benefits are paid under her SSN, then they are not included in your return at all.  They would be in her return, but if that is her only income, she is not required to file a Federal return.
