Social security payments are made for the month before, with rules that are so that the recipient lives for the entire month before when the benefits are paid out.
SSA pays the payment one month late, similar to how workers are paid for hours they have already worked.
This means that social security recipients will see their January payment in February.
If someone dies within a month, that month’s payment must be repaid.
Reimbursement of social security if a beneficiary dies
If a person died on April 1, the family would be able to keep the April payment because it was technically until March.
If a person dies on April 30, then the family must repay the unemployment benefit for May because the recipient died in the month for which they were to be paid.
The SSA must be notified immediately of the death by contacting the agency directly.
It can not be done online.
You must provide the SSA with the individual SSN.
