For information about this $255 death benefit lump-sum payment, contact your local Social Security office or call 1-***-***-**** ( TTY 1-***-***-****).

Social security has posted a very good summary on its web site of what to do to apply. You have to prove death, and your relationship to the deceased, with documents. So you must go to a social security office with those documents to apply. I suggest you make copies of the documents they advise you to bring when you call.

https://www.ssa.gov/planners/survivors/ifyou7.html is the link.

Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated on our five star scale. I'mCustomer
