Merchant Marine Retirement?

Surnames: SCHUMAN
Trying to find death place & date for my uncle, William (Bill) Charles SHUMAN (b. 2 Oct 1893). He was living Philadelphia PA in 1959, last I heard from him. He was planning to retire, possibly to New Jersey. In WWII he was a Commander in the Naval Reserve & a Chief Engineer in the Merchant Marines, (prompting us to call him our Commander & Chief),having had at least 3 ships torpedoed out from under him. Is there someplace I could write to see if he retired on a pension from the Merchant Marines? I do not find him on the Soc Sec Death Index. Any help appreciated. Mary (Bragg) Godsell.
