Hello everyone,My Mom was recently called Home. We were truly blessed to have had her with us for 95 years. I called the SSA today to report and stop her monthly SS retirement benefit. No problem. However, when 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? Since both my Mom and Dad received SS benefits and worked and earned those benefits, it seems odd to me that only 1 death benefit (my Dad) is paid? Of course, we are talking about the Government so I guess it doesn't have to make common sense? (shrugs)Any replies are welcome.TIARichArizona
