The answer to your question is: maybe. Without knowing more about the family relatives still alive and potentially eligible, the following is a priority list of ones that can receive the money: 1.The surviving spouse who was either living in the same household as the deceased at the time of death or who, for the month of death, was entitled to a monthly benefit on the same record as the deceased; 2.Children who, for the month of death, were entitled to a monthly benefit on the same record as the deceased; 3.Parents who, for the month of death, were entitled to a monthly benefit on the same record as the deceased; 4.A surviving spouse not qualified under 1. above; 5.Children not qualified under 2. above; 6.Parents not qualified under 3. above; or 7.The legal representative of the deceased person's estate. This information is from the SSA website and I recommend you review it and study it closel.  https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-1724.html    Form SSA-1724 needs to be completed by the person in the list of the 7 indicated above that has the highest priority.  Here is an online fillable PDF form link https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-1724.pdf WARNING: do not complete this form for yourself if you have any question whether you are the correct person to request and receive the money.  SSA prosecutes fraud.
