Most people who passed away after 1962, and also had a Social Security number, are included in the Social Security Death Records Index, or what is commonly known as the SSDI.
The details included in these records are the dead person’s name, his Social Security number or SSN, the state there his Social Security number had been issued, his date of birth and the date of the demise, zip code of his last residence, and the zip code of the place where death benefit was dispatched.
If you are looking for Social Security death records then a good place to search is the internet. There are many websites that offer this service, but make sure you make use of all the features like 'advanced' or 'enhanced' search, so that you can get results faster. The Social Security Death Records Index or SSDI is quite a handy tool, especially for genealogists, since it can come up with sufficient details pertaining to a dead person -- from his exact date of birth and date of death to his last known geographical location.
Once you have located the deceased person’s details in the SSDI, you can contact the Social Security Administration for full information from his Social Security application file. You will have to fill out a form known as the SS5 form, and pay a fee of $27 for this process. You can check the SSA's website to find out where you can send the hard copy of the form and send the same to the Office of Earnings Operations at the SSA.
