Who gets the social security money once a parent dies?
Someone has to pay for the funeral and that person will get a death certificate to show Social Security. That person also takes the parent's S.S. Card with them. Then, Social Security will give them a check. It will be a lump sum payment and might only be a few hundred dollars. If the wife or husband is still alive they get the money otherwise the child who goes to the S.S. gets it.

Federal income tax
Unfortunately, this is the same thing and you cannot.
No one will get it. Your parents paid for other people's social security. Just as younger people pay for your parents. Your parents do not have a balance for their social secu…rity. The government pays eligible people a certain amount until they die.
There is a child benefit check until the child reaches age 18.
You don't really have to report your marriage at all, unless one or both of you have changed your name as a result of the marriage.
It will not unless our country has no money ever again but that will not ever happen. Money that is collected from employees and employers via the FICA tax goes into the soc…ial security fund. The fund is "invested" completely in government bonds that pay interest to the fund. The fund pays the benefits for social security. At the present rate of pay-out and collection, the fund will run out of money in about 2040. The problem is that even before the fund runs out of money, it will have to start cashing in its bonds and the money will have to be found from other taxes. People who are working will have to pay more in taxes in order to pay benefits to to growing number of retired people. Benefits are not likely to be stopped but there will surely be pressure to reduce them.
You can start receiving retirement benefits at age 62. However, you will get substantially more if you wait until you are older to get your first check. The amount you will re…ceive at different ages depends on when you were born, as well as how much you paid in through the years.
If your husband and you both draw Social Security and he dies can you draw a portion of his Social Security?
Social Security rules and regulations, and legislation, vary according to the area in which you live and use these services. You will need to contact your local …Social Security office to learn how you will be affected financially by your husband's death and also by other changes which might affect your allowances in some way. You don't need to give personal detals about yourself to the officer with whom you speak and can, of course, withold your caller ID. Making an enquiry anonymously won't affect in any way the advice you'll be given, but do be aware you must be absolutely honest when giving detals about your situation: if you don't tell the exact truth the advice you receive is worthless.
You must notify Social Security when someone dies, and any benefits received for the month of their death onwards should be returned to social security. If the deceases …has a direct deposit arrangement with the SSA, after notification of death they can usually tap into the account and pull that last check back out. Do not attempt to circumvent the recovery process or fool the SSA, as penalties and punishment for criminal acts may apply. Even if the money is withdrawn from the account, SSA will still have to be repaid. Usually this notification to SSA will be done by the surviving spouse, children or executor. Just call the local or main SSA number, and they have a procedure to take the necessary information. SSA also has a pamplet online "What To Do When A Beneficiary Dies" you can access.

Here are some details - If you are getting SS benefits and you die this month, even if it's the 31st, your next check has to be sent back to Social Security. Then, …your spouse can collect money on your account. They have rules about things - like you have to have been married for ten years. Or, the spouse has to be 65 to get it. If you aren't collecting benefits your spouse has to wait until they are 65 to collect it. If you have minor children, they get a check each month until they are of legal age. If you have no spouse and your children are grown, the children get a lump sum payment which is only a few hundred dollars.
What are the guidelines for having to return a social security check after a parent dies yours died the 4th of May and your sister is telling you we have to return the check?
My aunt died on the first of May and received her check on the 3rd, the lawyer told us it was okay to cash as social security checks are from the previous month. Which would h…ave been from April and she died in May.
Widows are eligible to begin drawing retirement benefits on their late husband's earnings record at age 60 if they have not remarried before that time. Disabled widows are eli…gible at 50. A widow may draw survivors' benefits at any age if she is raising the decedent's dependent minor children who are under age 16. The children should also qualify for separate survivor benefits. Please call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-772-1213 to speak with a representative about your specific situation.
Call the social security office and tell them. They may have forms for you fill out.
Answer No. The retirement age for qualifying for SS benefits is different depending upon the year in which the person was born, the minimum age for collecti…ng a reduced benefit is 62. Persons who have become disabled either by injury or illness may be eligible for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Insurance depending upon the individual's circumstances. Information about all SSA programs and procedures can be found on the website, Social Security Online, http://www.ssa.gov
They can acsess alot of things about you. There are probly internet searchs for that kind of stuff. Like people finds. Your socail security number contains the zip code of t…he city you were born in. So they would know that. And they have you put in your socail security number on anything like a bank account or a credit card account. So if they know enough about you they can acess your bank account and steal from you.
In a case such as this, I suggest that the obligee file an estate claim for the unpaid support.
You can't receive Social Security retirement benefits and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits at the same time. SSDI provides monthly benefits to people who a…re under full retirement age (age 65 or older) and who meet other requirements. Once you reach full retirement age, which is based on the year you were born, the Social Security Administration will automatically transfer your disability benefits to retirement benefits. Your monthly benefit amount will not change as a result of this transfer.
