I need to obtain my deceased fathers SSN. Can you direct me?

Customer Question

I need to obtain my deceased fathers SSN. Can you direct me?
JA: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.
Customer: I need it to check on a pension that might be owed to me.
JA: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?
Customer: No my Grandmother is adamant that I am intitled to this plus the back pay is that true?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Retirement Accountant about your situation and then connect you two.

Spoke to Jennifer - Pension Mgr there.

There are no benefits for a son, even if a dependent minor at the time.

...

Only a legal spouse would have been entitled, and only if spouse at the time of death

I hope you’ll rate me (using those stars, or faces on your screen, by clicking submit) based on thoroughness and accuracy, rather than any good news / bad news content. Otherwise I’m working for no crediting at all here.

Thank you!
