Customer Question
My mother died September...

My mother died September 2 of this year. She was collecting 1328 social security monthly. My brother and I are the only surviving children we are 55 and 57. My brother received a 669 check a couple of weeks ago will I also receive a check?

When a parent is collecting SSI, a child can collect IF he or she is 18 or under, or if they are permanently disabled. Since you and your brother are both over 18, unless you are both disabled, you should not be collecting a check from her SSI account.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more please feel free to ask and I will be happy to answer.

Thanks! Have a great week!
