Social Security Information
You should let Social Security know when a person dies as soon as possible. Usually, the funeral director will report the person’s death to Social Security.
You’ll need to give the deceased’s Social Security number to the funeral director so he or she can make the report.
Some of the deceased’s family members may be able to receive Social Security benefits if the deceased person worked long enough under Social Security to qualify for benefits.
Contact Social Security as soon as you can to make sure the family gets all the benefits they’re entitled.
Please click the link below and read the information carefully to learn what benefits may be available.
