When wife and I were doing Master Gardners back in the ‘90s, a gentleman in our local club received a similar letter from Social Security. It took him a good while to become undead.

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. : )

When my mother passed away, the Social Security Administration declared my father dead instead. My father showed up at the SSA office and said, “I am here to prove my existence!”

I wish you the best of luck with you resurrection.

It is strange this sort of stuff pops up. Always wonder how. Some employee thought hey wouldn’t this be funny, reversed a few numbers when entering some data, etc…

Seams like stuff like this takes forever and then one day you get to speak to the right person and it is fixed in a few minutes.

See thats what I thought. After getting the letter and thinking about it I thought MAYBE THERE IS A GOOD SIDE to being dead. I thought Maybe they can’t force a dead man to pay taxes.

In the State of Illinois YES dead people are not only required/forced to pay any and all taxes they are encouraged to vote as well.

I guess I might as well add to the insanity by asking if you had a nice funeral? Oh, and I was wondering if there will be an estate sale so we can have a go at owning some of your stuff??? If it’s not too much trouble, maybe you could post some pics so we know what to expect? I mean, you are deceased so you don’t have much else to do besides haunt the LJ website, right? Hopefully you became deceased in time to properly celebrate Day of the Dead and All-Hallows eve (Halloween)? I’m done for now, gonna go check my mailbox and see if I have a any letters like that.

A relative of mine was declared dead ( I still don’t understand how that happens but being a programmer, I can see a wrong number being input into a system somewhere )... and he fought with Medicare and SSN because they issued a stop on all of his benefits. When it came time to pay his taxes, he refused and went to an attorney to make a case. The attorney explained that even if you are “dead” and the government has stopped paying you.. your estate still owes whatever it is that the government says that you owe them… real fair huh?

Diverlloyd, Your crass comment was NOT appreciated. This is a SERIOUS situation for one of our members, which is going to take a LOG time to resolve. I doubt you’d be so flippant if it happened to YOU, and someone else made a snarky comment.

Carl, you have my sympathies here. Trying to convince the government that you are actually NOT dead is a real hassle. It happened to a family friend. He did get it resolved, but it took awhile. God bless and best of luck getting this sorted out in a timely manner.
