How do I report a death?

Q) How do I report a death?

A) Social Security Administration should be notified as soon as possible when a person dies. In most cases, the funeral director will report the person’s death to Social Security. You will need to furnish the funeral director with the deceased’s Social Security number so he or she can make the report.

  1. We hope you local Social Security office will reach out to you to review your case. We also hope you can get some assistance from family or friends in accompanying you to your local social office and speak on your behalf if you cannot reach them by phone. Please also reach out to your local VA office for assistance.
