Create all the documentation you need to return checks to the SSA after a death
When a recipient of Social Security benefits dies, the SSA should be notified by phone of the recipient's death. But what do you do if you find out there are benefits checks that were never cashed? Use Nolo's Letter to Return Checks to the Social Security Administration to:
determine which checks -- if any -- need to be returned
create a letter to send with the applicable checks
get confirmation that the SSA received the checks
Make sure you stay on the right side of the law -- use this legal form and return checks to the SSA without hassle.
