Good afternoon Thomas,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry for your loss. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I have been a licensed attorney for more than 3 decades, and I handle social security issues.

If you have not received the lump sum death benefit of $255 for your wife yet, then you just need to apply to social security for that benefit.

You can apply for the benefit by contacting social security at 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****) or by visiting your local Social Security office.

Here is a link to the social security site which explains your entitlement to this lump sum benefit: https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-8.html

You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.

I hope that I have been able to fully answer your question. As I am not an employee of JustAnswer, please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am compensated for assisting you. Thank you in advance.

I wish you and yours the best in 2016,

Doug
