I am sorry for your loss...

You cannot report a death or apply for survivors benefits online.

Social Security should be notified as soon as possible when a person dies.

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 1-800_772_1213 (TTY 1-800_325_0778). You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday.

Let me know your zip code - and I will find a local SSA office serving your area.

.

To apply for Parent's benefits - you must have been dependent on your child at the time of his or her death.

You may be asked to provide documents to show that you are eligible, such as:

  • A birth certificate or other proof of birth;
  • Proof of U.S. citizenship or lawful alien status if you were not born in the United States;
  • U.S. military discharge paper(s) if you had military service before 1968;
  • W-2 forms(s) and/or self-employment tax returns for last year; and
  • A death certificate for the deceased child.

Please be prepared.

Let me know if you need any further help.
