Funeral Payments

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.
