If that is the only income a child has, then the child does not have to file or report it either.
If the child has enough other income to be required to file, then the child reports the SS on the child's return.
It’s for his disability but it has both of our names and ssn on it. I’m also needing it for the child tax credit so my question is do I claim it on my taxes? And, if so, where?
Check the form 1099-SSA box 2 as noted by Jerry2000 above. There would not be 2 social security numbers. If you both get benefits you would each get your own 1099-SSA. You do not count his social security disability on your return. Unless he has other income, he would not need to file a tax return.

@cmoore1972 You have added to an old thread with multiple users' posts, so not sure what "same situation" you have. If your child gets a Social Security check you do NOT enter it on your own return. Someday when your child has a job, or other income, if he is still receiving SS, the SSA1099 will go on his own tax return with his other income.
