Customer Question
If your spouse dies...

If your spouse dies at the end of the month. Will you still get his social security check the first of the next month?

Accountant's Assistant: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

My daughter's husband is dying right now (not dead yet) He usually gets his ss check the 3rd of the month. Will she still get that check?

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

Not that I am aware of.

Sorry for your situation.

In order to qualify for September social security benefits - the person should be alive the full month of September.

In this case the check for September which will come in October is your to keep.
If the person will pass away in September - the check which will come in October should be returned to the SSA.

Sorry again. Let me know if any clarification needed.
