Is the monthly social security check prorated if they die in middle of month?
Social Security benefits are paid in arrears. That is, benefits are paid on the 1st of the month AFTER the beneficiary has earned them by living the previous month. The requirement is a person must live the entire month to earn the benefit. For instance, if one dies during the month of September - even September 30th - then no benefit should be paid on October 1st. If a beneficiary dies, you should notify the Social Security Administration immediately, as well as any other federal retirement office which pays retirement annuities. If a check is sent, don't cash it but return it. If money is directly deposited in the bank, don't spend it as it will be transferred back to the government. You should first call (800) 772-1213 and speak with a Social Security agent for more information.

Can you pay a security deposit then move in and prorate later in the month i.e. Pay security deposit on the first to secure the home then move in on the middle of the month and pro-rate?
NO. A security deposit is equal to one, one and a half or two months rent as regulated by your state Landlord Tenant Law, according to RentLaw.com . . It depends on the land…lord. Most companies will be happy to do this for you. Know that it is illegal for landlords to charge "double rent" on an apartment (having two parties paying rent for the same unit). Some landlords will try and pro-rate the last month rather than the first month. Be leery of this, but if you must accept it, get it in writing, make sure it's included in your lease agreement, and keep a copy in a place where you can find it. You shouldn't have any problem doing what you're describing, as long as you stick to your move-in date. Landlords get nervous when people push moving in back more than a few days.

If you are an employee and you have an employer you will NOT have any amounts withheld out of your net take home paycheck. You NEVER do have any deductions for federal taxes o…r other items from your net take home paycheck when it is issued to you. The net amount that is on the paycheck that you have in your hand is your net pay for the pay period after all of the federal taxes and other necessary withholding amounts have been withheld from your gross earnings by your employer payroll department. You should get the information from your employer payroll department if you really need to know the correct numbers or amount that should be deducted from your gross earnings not from your paycheck. It is possible that the one that is paying you is treating you as a self employed taxpayer (independent contractor) and will be issuing you a 1099-MISC at the end of the tax year for your business operation. If that is what is going on and it is not correct then you may have to contact your local IRS for some assistance with this matter. Go to the IRS gov website and use the search box for Form SS-8 If, after reviewing the three categories of evidence, it is still unclear whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor, Form SS-8, Determination of Worker Status for Purposes of Federal Employment Taxes and Income Tax Withholding (PDF) can be filed with the IRS. The form may be filed by either the business or the worker. The IRS will review the facts and circumstances and officially determine the worker's status. Be aware that it can take at least six months to get a determination, but a business that continually hires the same types of workers to perform particular services may want to consider filing the Form SS-8 (PDF). The information that is on the 1099-MISC is used to report the income that you received during the year using the 1040 income tax return and if the amount from the 1099-MISC is in box 7 nonemployee compensation then you are a self employed taxpayer. You will need to report that income, and any related expenses, on Form 1040, Schedule C, Profit or Loss from Business, or you may qualify to use Form 1040, Schedule C-EZ, TO determine your Net Profit from Business. You will also need to use Form 1040, Schedule SE, Self-Employment Tax to compute and report your social security and Medicare tax.
