SS benefits of disabled, deceased child

  • 1.  SS benefits of disabled, deceased child

    Posted 19 days ago
    Mom and dad had an adult child in a nursing home.  The child passed away before SSA could pay the home's final bill.  SSA paid mom and dad (who are receive benefits of their own), who in turn paid the home's final bill.  SSA says they plan to include child's benefits in mom and dad's 1099 since they received the payment.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve this?

    Thanks in advance.
