Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert

You cannot report a death or apply for survivors benefits online. Social Security should be notified as soon as possible when a person dies. In most cases, the funeral home will report the person’s death to Social Security. You should give the funeral home the deceased person’s Social Security number if you want them to make the report. If you need to report a death or apply for benefits, call 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****). You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday. See link to walk you through the process and let you know what documents you need to apply: https://socialsecurity.gov/planners/survivors/howtoapply.html
