Reporting A Death To The Government

Family members of a deceased recipient of Supplemental Security Income are legally required to notify Social Security of their passing.  Depending on the funeral arrangements, there are some directors who will notify Social Security so that the family does not have to.  Be sure to speak with your funeral home regarding these policies.  In the event that they do offer these services, be sure to follow up so that you are assured that the phone calls have been made.

If you must make the phone call on your own, you can report the death by calling, toll free, 800-772-1213 (TTY 800-325-0778) anytime from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.  You will also need the Social Security number of the deceased person while making this call.

At this point, it is also a good idea to notify banks or other financial institutions of the person’s passing.  Remember to ask the bank to not cash any checks made by the deceased during the month in which he or she died, or the month after.
