Ask Social Security Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
You need to contact social security as soon as possible for couple of reason:
- to report his death and stop his benefits
- to apply for the $255 lump-sum benefits
- to check if you may be eligible for widows benefits.
I would suggest to make an appointment at your local social security office. You will need to bring your marriage certificate, death certificate and your ID.
