AARP's Social Security Q&A Tool

If a Social Security beneficiary dies in the middle of the month, are his or her survivors required to return a portion of the payment?

En español | Since benefits are paid a month behind (e.g. the benefit for January is paid in February), any payment received during the month of death is payable and does not have to be returned.
