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

Unfortunately, it takes Social Security many months to process the $255 death benefit.

My best advice would be to start calling Social Security once a week staring at the beginning of April to check on the status of your check. You can call Social Security at 1-***-***-**** between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
