    I'm trying to find out if this death benefit is only for spouses or can adult children apply for this?

    Lost my mother Monday & wondered if we could use this towards her funeral expenses.

    Thanks!

    The SS death benefit is only payable to a surviving spouse or a minor child.

    That's what I was thinking, but wasn't sure. Thanks

    No, it's not easy, but I have a few people I can talk to which does help.
