Hi. My name's Lane. I'm sorry or your loss.

...

Also, so sorry, but reporting a death is one of the few things that cannot be done online.

...

If you need to report a death, contact your local Social Security office or call 1-***-***-**** ( TTY 1-***-***-****).

...

You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday.

...

Note: In most cases, the funeral home will report the person's death to Social Security.
