Social Security Benefits
With each service provided, our staff will send a Statement of Death by Funeral Director to the Social Security office. This statement begins the process to discontinue Social Security payments. Currently, Social Security pays a $255.00 death benefit only to a surviving spouse or minor child. The surviving spouse and guardian of minor children must contact the Social Security Office in person to arrange for benefits. The local office is located at 64285 Hwy 434, Lacombe, LA 70445 (9-3 MTTF) (9-12 W) (866) 887-8997. www.ssa.gov or the National office Toll Free at 1-800-772-1214.
