He always'ex- pressed 'the desire that if anything happened to him, he wanted me to have his Social Security as he had paid in on it for years. Our father is still living but they were not very close to each other. "Will you advise how I am covered from my brother's Social Security account." Mrs; A. R. (A) Social Security payments are made according to the law not according to the wishes of those insured. You cannot "will" your payments to anyone. Assuming that your brother was single and that he was not furnishing at least half of his father's support at the time of his death, the only Social Security payment due from his account would be the lump sum burial benefit. This would be from $90 to $255, depend ing upon his monthly benefit credit at the time of his death.
