THANK YOU VERY MUCH. L.W. EMAIL IS IN SMALL LETTERS. imXXX@yahoo.com phone is 5xx-xxx-xxxx.

I need to know if my mother can receive death benefits from my father's SS. She has her own SS benefits now.
Can we fill out the form on line?
I also need to know if I can get any benefits from my ex-husband. We were married for 20 plus years.
Thank You.

I had brought in everything requested when I spoke with someone from SS. My husband died adn we have a 2 year old child. I was told that we, my son and I, each would recieve 768 a month in benefits, plus the one lump sum for funeral... However, it has now been 3 weeks since I have submitted the paperwork, how long does it take to go into effect? Also, how can you call and actually get hold of a person.. I call and all I get are automated responses, I would like to speak to a person at the location in which I submitted the paperwork..
Thank you

who on social security are eligible for the one time $250 dollar stimulus money. Does a parent getting a social security check for a surviving child qualify?
