Are You Mistakenly Recorded As Deceased?
Posted in: Uncategorized on July 29th, 2011

social security and deathBelieve it or not, the Social Security Administration has listed quite a large amount of Americans as wrongfully dead.  Social Security numbers are issued to everybody at birth who is an American citizen, and after any individual dies, they need to be reported to the Social Security Administration.  Generally speaking, this works out fine and it helps keep track of who is receiving what benefits, be they Supplemental Security Income, Social Security Disability Insurance, or just plain Social Security benefits that are the entitlement of any retired American.

No Time For Mistakes

However, given the size of the Social Security Administration and the fact that there are over 350 million Americans at this point means that mistakes are going to be made.  It might sound somewhat amusing if the Social Security Administration thinks that you are dead, but the fact of the matter is that this can cause you any number of problems, from losing benefits to even losing housing.  A woman in Arizona was actually refused an apartment when it was revealed that her Social Security number listed her as dead – she had to get a letter from a doctor proving that she was, indeed, alive.

If you happen to be on the list of those who are dead – which is called the Death Master File by the Social Security Administration – be sure to contact the Administration right away to fix the problem.  Failure to do so can result in termination of benefits.  You can contact the Social Security Administration at 800-772-1213, or go to their website at www.ssa.gov for more information.
