Thank you for your question. The only social security payments you will have to send back are the ones that are received after she passed. As you are paid in one month for the previous month, if she was not alive at the last day of the previous month you should pay back that amount. If you cannot pay right away, just pay it as soon as you can -- no need to be worried. They will work with you provided that you are honest with them.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.
