I am so sorry for your loss.

OK, when you get a certified spare copy of the death certificate, you can send it to the SSA and once they receive, they will stop the checks. If one or two slip through, they will have to be paid back, so just keep them safe. You can call your local SSA or(###) ###-####to verbally advise of his passing, and then follow up with the confirming DC.
