The answer to your question is: maybe.

Without knowing more about the family relatives still alive and potentially eligible, the following is a priority list of ones that can receive the money:

1.The surviving spouse who was either living in the same household as the deceased at the time of death or who, for the month of death, was entitled to a monthly benefit on the same record as the deceased;

2.Children who, for the month of death, were entitled to a monthly benefit on the same record as the deceased;

3.Parents who, for the month of death, were entitled to a monthly benefit on the same record as the deceased;

4.A surviving spouse not qualified under 1. above;

5.Children not qualified under 2. above;

6.Parents not qualified under 3. above; or

7.The legal representative of the deceased person's estate.

This information is from the SSA website and I recommend you review it and study it closel.  https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-1724.html   

Form SSA-1724 needs to be completed by the person in the list of the 7 indicated above that has the highest priority.  Here is an online fillable PDF form link https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-1724.pdf

WARNING: do not complete this form for yourself if you have any question whether you are the correct person to request and receive the money.  SSA prosecutes fraud.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
