Witkowiak Funeral Home is committed to providing families with as much assistance as we possibly can, and when it comes to obtaining any benefits to which you are entitled, you can be confident that we will competently assist and guide you through the process.
When a death occurs, generally the first form that we complete and file is the “Statement of Death by Funeral Director” form. The Social Security Administration is not able to proceed with any claim until they receive this form, so we try to prevent any delays in your receiving death benefits from Social Security by filing the necessary paperwork a very timely fashion.
The following information is designed to assist you in understanding your eligibility for Social Security Benefits and how to proceed when filing a claim for Social Security Benefits. If you do not find the information you are looking for here, more information is available from the Social Security Administration web site, www.ssa.gov.
