Hi Ms. Spencer..You have reached JustAnswer.com, a website that matches users with certified experrt users to answer questions about finance, tax, social security, etc..But we are NOT and don't represent the Social Security administration..However, I can help - by showing how to get this done.
Expert:  Lane replied 1 year ago.
If you need to report a death, contact your local Social Security office or call 1-***-***-**** ( TTY 1-***-***-****). You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday..Also, you should nothe that, in most cases, the funeral home will report the person's death to Social Security..PLeasae let me know if you hav questions at all....Lane.

One other thought ... if you give the funeral director her social security number, and ask that he/she (the funderal director) report this to social security, this is another way to ensure that this gets done..This is a normal activity for funderal directors..I hope this has helped..If this HAS helped, your positive rating … (by clicking or touching the stars or smileys on your screen) … would be appreciated … That’s how we’re credited for the work here.Thank You,Lane
