Social Security

The funeral director will report the person’s death to Social Security. You will need to furnish the funeral director with the deceased’s Social Security number 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. You should get in touch with Social Security as soon as you can to make sure the family receives all the benefits to which it may be entitled.
 
For more information on Social Security benefits please visit their website at www.socialsecurity.gov or call toll free at 1-800-772-1213 (for deaf or hard of hearing call their TTY number at 1-800-325-0778. Social Security can answer specific questions and provide information by automated phone service 24 hours a day.
