Yep, we know all about that. We pulled into our Credit Union drive up this spring and sent a check in for cash because we were going on a trip to Florida. We waited for a long time sitting there at the drive thru wondering what the heck. Then finally a gal came walking around the corner of the building and walked up to our vehicle and proceeded to tell us that my wife (sitting next to me in the cab of the truck) was deceased. The Social Security Admin had sent our Credit Union a letter informing them she had died in January and that they were to return here SS check amounts since the first of the year. Nice! We went from the CU to the SS office. It took 4-1/2 months and some letter writing to some big wigs to get that fixed. That is actually making the process we went thru sound easy but there was a lot more to it.

At least you got a letter, we received nothing and it was 3 months after the date the SS Admin said she passed. Not even our credit union made any effort to notify me the survivor and account holder. Real nice! We had no money left in the bank account because we were paying our bills as normal. We were surprised that the offices we were dealing with hadn’t compounded the problem or something like that.

We can only wish you the very best of luck with your situation. Also glad you are not deceased. : )
