You cannot report a death online although many times the funeral home will take care of that. Depending on your age you can also apply for survivor benefits and a one time payment of $255 for a spouse. See link: https://www.ssa.gov/planners/survivors/ifyou7.html You can call 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****) and speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday. You can also contact your local Social Security office.
