Q: How do I notify SSN about her passing away (we do not yet have death certificates)?
A: You can call the social security office at 1-***-***-**** (TTY: 1-***-***-****)., or it might be less of a hassle asking the funeral home to report her death to social security. SEE BELOW:
In most cases, the funeral home will report the person’s death to Social Security. You should give the funeral home the deceased person’s Social Security number if you want them to make the report.
If you need to report a death or apply for benefits, call 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****). You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday. You can also contact your local Social Security office. An appointment is not required, but if you call ahead and schedule one, it may reduce the time you spend waiting to speak to someone.
