A) To request death benefits for your father, you will need to contact the appropriate organization directly. In the United States, Social Security Administration (SSA) handles death benefits. You can reach them by calling their toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213 or by visiting your local Social Security office in person.
You can also:
Go to the SSA website and create an account.
Once you have created an account, you will be able to schedule an appointment online.
When you schedule your appointment, you will need to provide the following information:
Your father’s name
Your father’s Social Security number
The date of your father’s death
Your relationship to your father
You will also need to choose a time and location for your appointment.
Once you have scheduled your appointment, you will receive a confirmation email.

Here are some tips for scheduling your appointment:
Try to schedule your appointment as soon as possible after your father’s death.
Be sure to choose a time and location that is convenient for you.
If you have any questions, you can contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213.
When contacting the SSA, be prepared to provide relevant information about your father, such as his Social Security number, date of birth, date of death, and other necessary details. They will guide you through the process and let you know what documents you need to provide to claim the death benefits.
If you’re unable to visit the SSA office or prefer to do it online, you can also visit their official website at www.ssa.gov to find more information about death benefits and how to apply for them.
Remember, dealing with the loss of a loved one can be challenging, so it may be helpful to seek support from friends, family, or grief counseling during this time.
