What is a Funeral Payment?
If you’re on a low income and need help to pay for a funeral you’re arranging, you may be able to get a Funeral Payment.
Am I eligible?
Getting a Funeral Payment depends on:
- the benefits and tax credits you’re getting
- your relationship with the person who died
- any other money other than your personal savings
How do I claim?
If you’re the surviving husband, wife or civil partner you can make a claim over the phone by contacting the Bereavement Service. They’ll help you claim any funeral costs or bereavement benefits you may be entitled to.
