Social Security Cards (SS-5) #general

Amy Mitchell

Hi Jewishgen folks,

A few questions about ordering an SS-5 (Deceased Person's Original copy) for my great-grandmother (d1973).

  1. What kind of information comes with an SS-5? 
  2. I can not find a death certificate for the deceased person, but I know they will accept a statement of death from the funeral director.  What does the director need to include? 
  3. And will my application be disqualified if the funeral director is not the one who performed the service?
  4. Should I ask for certification?

Thank you in advance!
