Please accept my condolences.

In most cases, the funeral home will report the death to SSA. You should give the funeral home her Social Security number if you want them to make the report.

You can report her passing , call 1-***-***-**** (TTY 1-***-***-****). You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday.

You can also contact your local Social Security office. An appointment is not required, but if you call ahead and schedule one, it may reduce the time you spend waiting to speak to someone.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.
