Just Answer is not associated with Social Security. So, we do not have access to your personal information.

Often, the funeral home will take care of notifying social security. If you want them to do that, you will need to give the deceased’s Social Security Number to the funeral director so they can make the report.

Otherwise, If you need to report a death, contact your local Social Security office or call 1-***-***-**** ( TTY 1-***-***-****). You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday.

You can not report the death online to SSA.

If (and only if) you are completely satisfied that your question is answered, please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.

There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
