I asked about the lump sum death benefit of $255 IIRC, the SSA informed me that only her spouse (my Dad is 20 years deceased) or any of her children under 18 years old are eligible ... with the exception of a child who became disabled before 22 years of age. All her siblings are over 55.

Is this correct?


My condolences on your loss. Regardless of how long we have them it's still rough.

Yes, that's correct info about the SS death benefit.
