Answer: You may need to contact an Estate attorney to find out what rights your daughter has to her father's estate. There are many factors here that need to be looked at. If father was on the birth certificate, she may be eligible for Social Security benefits. You cannot report a death or apply for survivors’ benefits online. If you need to report a death, contact your local Social Security office or call 1-800-772-1213 ( TTY 1-800-325-0778). You can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 AM and 7 PM Monday through Friday.
