Yes, there's a good chance your children, as the biological children of a disability beneficiary, can receive payments on his work record. In this case, since you (apparently) have custody, you would likely be the "representative payee" who receives the benefit payments.

Also, note your husband's benefits can be garnished to fulfill alimony or child support obligations.
