Hi,

If I understand your question correctly, you want to know if your grandchildren can get benefits on your Social Security record. I can't answer that with a yes or no without more information.

In order for a child to qualify for benefits on their grandparent's Social Security record, they must either be a) adopted by the grandparent, or b) both of their natural parents must be either deceased or disabled (https://secure.ssa.gov/apps10/poms.nsf/lnx/0200306235).
