Inspiring Thougfits by Randy Minter THE SOCIAL SECURITY DEATH BENEFIT In societies less advanced Upon the death of his or her husband or wife, the surviving spouse who is living in the same household may be entitled to receive a one-time lump sum benefit of $255. If there is no spouse, a dependent child (generally age 18 or under) may then be eligible for this one-time death benefit. In order to qualify, the deceased worker must have been considered to be "currently insured," which means he or she had at least six quarters of earnings covered by Social Security withholding during the ful 13-quarter period prior to his or her death. It is recommended that a death be immediately reported to the Social Security Administration in order to get the needed paperwork. Usually, the funeral director will report the person's death to Social Security You'll need to give the deceased's Social Security number to the funeral director so they can make the report.
