Social Security Death Benefits - Missing Checks and Unclaimed Death Benefits    

Heirs of decedents who have left behind unclaimed assets and unclaimed benefits make up the largest group of individuals owed money and property. Most family members do not know they are entitled to receive funds, as financial records are often incomplete or missing at the time of death.

Approximately $500 million dollars in Social Security benefit checks are not negotiated each year. There is no time limit concerning a request to reissue a lost or uncashed check, but no effort is made to locate and/or notify owners of uncashed checks and unclaimed benefits.

The Social Security Death Index (SSDI) contains important several important bits of information on 92 million persons whose deaths are on file with the Social Security Administration, including: social security number, date of issuance, state of issuance, date of birth, date of death, last known residence, and payment of final benefit.

Also included are the names of legal aliens with social security numbers, and some 400,000 railroad retirees, who may be entitled to collect Railroad Retirement Board pensions and benefits. For assistance with RRB benefits go to: RRB Search

With a Social Security number heirs can obtain the decedent's Social Security application and claims file, which details birth place, parentsí names, and where the lump-sum death distribution beneficiary lived. Knowing the Social Security number of a deceased relative is often necessary to conduct an effective unclaimed asset search, and is necessary when making a claim.
