You cannot report a death or apply for survivors benefits online.

In most cases, the funeral home will report the person’s death to us.

You should give the funeral home the deceased person’s Social Security number if you want them to make the report.

.

If you need to report a death or apply for benefits, 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.

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.

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