Funeral Payment offers financial assistance to those with a low income to help with the cost of a funeral.
How much you will get depends on your circumstances and if you are eligible.
In order to receive a Funeral Payment you must be responsible for the funeral and:
- claim in time (within 3 months of the funeral);
- be in receipt of certain benefits; and
- meet the rules on your relationship with the deceased.
To make a claim, complete the Funeral Payment (SF200) claim form. This is available online. Return to your local Jobcentre Plus in the post.
Please visit the website for more information.
