My mother died in August of 2020 - Social Security used the wrong death date, stopped her last payment (for July 2020) and then 6 months later stole an an additional 2 months payments out of our joint account. I can't find any information on what to do when SS OWES us money. I have been dealing with this for a year and a half.
Social Security Underpayments
My wife died in 2002 she was sick 4 yrs before she died. She applied for ss but was denied first time then just before she died she was approved. Then after she died ss notified me ss owed her 7000.00 dollars. At the time I didn't need the money so I never followed up on it. Now that I'm older and with health problem I could use the money. Am I eligible for it now after so many yrs?
My father passed, and is owed his final payment. It's his ONLY asset. I am completing SSA-1724 - and listing all 4 children. However, his mother (100 years old) is still alive. She is unwilling to give me her SSN to complete the form. Will it get processed without her SSN?
My sister died Aug 6. Her SS deposited to her account on Aug 10,, i am co owner of her checking acct. Should I return the SS or will the bank do this?
I am looking to have my mom's ss benefit redeposited back into her bank account after reporting her death which caused an overdraft i am on the account and now am responsible.
My boyfriend, no legal arrangement was made, recently died. He did leave a will with a common friend. He died January 12. Social Security pays by direct deposit the 3rd Wednesday of the month. The bank returned that payment. My understanding from the SocialSecurity.gov website is that his estate was entitled to that check as payment in January is for December. His estate would not be entitled to anything after January.
How is this resolved?
Thank you Karen
I have lived as a caregiver for my mom fir the past 8 years and in the last couple took care of her bills as POA. Mom’s social security check was deposited on the third and her bills paid from it. Mom passed on the sixth this month and social security pulled back her direct deposit on the 15th putting her account overdrawn by the social security amount. What am I obligated to pay back?
I'm sorry for your loss.
My father passed august 25, 2018. All year he received his deposit on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd of each month. In August when he died he received his deposit on 8/3/2018. He died August 25 and he received another deposit on August 31, 2018. A deposit went back to Social Security. Each payment is for the month prior. We filed the 1724 back in November 2019. They put us off over and over and over. Recently I was told moms claim on the 1724 was rejected. But no one could explain why. A manager was to call back that day or the next, no one ever called.
How far back does a legally entitled heir have to request a refund if their family member’s final check issued for the month of their death?
There's no set time limit for claiming a Social Security underpayment that was due to a deceased person. However, no Social Security payment is due for the month of a person's death.
My father passed away on July 13, 2019, he was 88 years old. He has been receiving SSS pension since 2009. His bank account reflected the remittance for $525 on July 3, 2019 but SSS deducted the entirel amount after knowledge of his passing away.
May I know if this is correct since this remittance was for June 2019. And also he has about $200 balance from his bank but since the account was diactivated/ATM, I am not able to withdraw any amount from his bank account. Is this correct? Should I file a claim with SSS and complete a form?
