Hello, I'm in a foreign land (Cyprus), and my mother-in-law — a U.S. citizen — just died. She was receiving Soc. Sec. benefits. How should I report this to the S.S.A.? Is by phone sufficient? Or must I mail a copy of the death certificate (I don't have the address)? Also, is her 85 year old husband (who lived with her), and is not a U.S. citizen, eligible for a death benefit? If yes, how is that arranged? Thanks for your help!
