I need to report a death

Accountant's Assistant: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

My mother died Feb. 6 and I need to notify you of her death since she receives benefits.

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits properly. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

I'm not sure what to ask.

In most cases, the funeral director will report the person’s death to Social Security.

Give the funeral director the deceased’s Social Security number so he or she can report the death.

You cannot report a death online.

If you need to report a death, contact your local Social Security office or call 1-800_772_1213 (TTY 1-800_325_0778).

You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday.

Let me know your zip code and I will find local office serving your area,
