Customer Question
I am in need...

I am in need of my ex-husbands social security number for the paperwork on a death claim for our daughter who passed away. Can U help?

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

I thought I had to apply for a death claim with the social security administration as her mother.

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

Do you need a copy of the death certificate?

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Parents are not entitled to receive the one-time survivor benefit of $255.

Social Security will pay a lump-sum death benefit of $255 to:

  • A spouse who was living with the deceased person at the time of death; or
  • A spouse or a child who, in the month of death, is eligible for a Social Security benefit based on the deceased person’s record.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
