My husband passed away on October 10th. Social Security paid is September payment on the 12th and took it back on the 17th. Is that correct or did they pull the payment too soon?

Hi. Sorry to hear of your loss. Soc. Sec. payments are not paid in the month of death.

However, you should contact the Social Security to make a claim for any available benefits. They will likely request a copy of the death certificate.
