First,, I'm sorry to hear you had a death in the family. You cannot report a death online. If you need to report a death, contact your local social security office (https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp)or call 1-***-***-**** ( TTY 1-***-***-****). You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday. In most cases, the funeral home will report the person’s death to Social Security. If you want them to do that, you will need to give the deceased’s Social Security Number to the funeral director so they can make the report.
