How Social Security Can Help You When A Family Member Dies

Social Security should be notified as soon as possible when a person dies. In most cases, the funeral director will report the person's death to Social Security. You will need to furnish the funeral director with the deceased's Social Security number so he or she can make the report.

Social Security Death Benefits

This site provides information regarding death benefits provided by the Social Security Administration. Further information can be found at www.socialsecurity.gov.

The National Archives

This site can be used to obtain Military Service Records as well as many historical documents.

PRE-ARRANGEMENT

Learn about Pre-Planning for your funeral as well as your life!

At the funeral home, or in the privacy of your own home, your funeral director can help you pre-plan a traditional or non-traditional funeral. This may involve discussing your wishes with loved ones, explaining the procedures for handling your affairs, deciding on the kind of funeral you want, and selecting specific funeral items such as casket, vault and flowers.

The funeral can be paid for by whole life insurance or an annuity from the Loyal Christian Benefit Association (LCBA). You can make one payment or spread payments out over several years

When you pre-plan with LCBA, you become a member of a century-old Christian fraternal association. Your membership entitles you to added benefits and provides support for local charities. Ask your funeral director for a brochure that explains these benefits or call LCBA at 1-800-234-5222 and ask for Member Service.
