When an individual seeking SSI benefits under Title XVI passes away, underpayments of SSI benefits are payable only to the surviving spouse if the surviving spouse was living in the same household with the claimant at the time of death or within six months immediately preceding death. There are other rules that apply to the parents of disabled or blind children that can also be relevant. To collect these benefits, it is necessary to file a Form SSA 1724 with the Social Security Administration.
