Bereavement Payment

JOIN THE DISCUSSION

Bereavement Payment or what used to be called Widow s Payment, is a one-off lump sum of £2,000 that may be paid to qualifying bereaved individuals. Before this payment can be made, certain criteria must be met. This payment will not need to be repaid, however it will only be paid once. Bereavement Payment is not an on-going benefit.

Qualifying for Bereavement Payment There are certain eligibility requirements for Bereavement Payment. Applicants must be the husband, wife or civil partner of the deceased and the deceased must have paid National Insurance contributions. If the deceased did not make National Insurance contributions, then his or her death must have been caused by their job. In addition, the deceased must not have qualified for Category A State Retirement Benefit at the time of his or her death. The applicant must also have been under the age of qualifying for State Pension (60 years of age for women, 65 years of age for men) at the time of the death. Applicants who were divorced at the time of the death, living with someone else at the time of the death or were in prison at the time of the death will not be eligible for Bereavement Payment.

Applying for Bereavement Payment

Bereavement Payment applications may be made within 12 months (one year) of the death. Applications may be made via form BB1 from the Department for Work and Pensions or by ordering a Bereavement Benefits pack from the local Jobcentre Plus or social security office. This pack will include all information necessary to complete an application. Proof of all information entered onto the form may be needed, such as the applicant s identity, the deceased s employment and/or National Insurance contributions, and/or cause of death (for example, if it was caused while on the job). Official documents will likely be needed to confirm this information. All completed applications should then be sent back to the Jobcentre Plus or social security office in order for a decision to be made regarding eligibility and approval for Bereavement Payment. If an application is denied, the applicant does have the right to ask for a re-calculation or to officially appeal the decision.

Receiving Bereavement Payment

If all of the eligibility criteria are met and an application for Bereavement Payment is approved, it will be paid as a one-off lump sum of £2,000 that is exempt from tax. This amount will be paid via direct deposit/Direct Payment to the applicant s bank account, building society account, Post Office account or National Savings account. While this payment will not likely affect the receipt of other benefits, it will boost the applicant s total savings and therefore may cause the amount of any means-tested benefits to be reduced. This may include Income Support, (income based) Jobseeker s Allowance, Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax.

Bereavement Payment, a one-off, tax-free lump sum of £2,000 may be granted to individuals who qualify for this assistance. Qualification for Bereavement Payment depends upon the applicant s age, the applicant s relationship to the deceased, the deceased s employment and National Insurance contributions and the deceased s status in regards to Category A State Retirement Benefit. Further information on Bereavement Payment can be obtained from any and all Jobcentre Plus or social security offices.

  5. My mum died very suddenly over 2 years ago and my dad was never made aware that he was entitled to both the benefit and the allowance. He is now challenging the decisión that he is outside the 12 month time limit. Does anybody have experience of this situation? Thank you

  6. my mother passed away recently and i applied for funeral payment but was refused as i have brothers and sisters who work although not good paying jobs and have there own family’s to support i am on benefits due to ill health some of the family are trying to help with the cost but not all i lived with my mother and cared for her but they say i am not responsible for paying her funeral but the bill is in my name and and i will be left with the outstanding debt i can not even get help with my share of the cost so i am having to try and sell things to raise money but not having much luck.

  7. I lost my dad and my son in 7 weeks. My son was 23yrs old had ducheenes muscular dystrophy. I am off work will I be able to claim any breavment payment. Me and my husband are both of work and we still have bills to pay. Is their any help we can get.

  8. @Kully. You need to be the spouse (or civil partner) of the deceased to qualify for any bereavement payment unfortunately. If you are temporarily off work because of this, there may be other things you can claim, such as income support. Try the Turn to Us calculator on their website.

  9. my mum has just died and i work full time is there anything i can get towards payment for her funeral she was 69 years young and died of lung cancer there is no one else in the family and i don’t get a good wage.i work as a miner.thank’s

  10. @andy. Firstly, is there money from her estate that will pay for the funeral? Secondly, the funeral director may be able to direct to any funds that he/she knows are available in your area. Funeral directors also have payment plans that make paying easier by spreading the payments over a time period. Most funeral grants are income based so if you’re not on benefits then you may find you are not eligible, but more information can be found here.

  11. Our son passed away aged 40 on 13th January 2015 and was a single person and had no estate or funds. My wife is on old age pension and i work part time and receive working tax credit. We applied for bereavement payment but were refused. We do not have the funds to pay for the funeral and had to borrow money to pay for it, which we have to pay back. What are we entitled to claim for.

  12. @BJN28 – You may be eligible for funeral payment benefit so check here to be sure. Note that this does have to be claimed within 3 months of the funeral. You could also try and apply for a grant to help with costs. There is some information on the Turn2Us website and you could also try one of the charities that can sometimes help with payments thre is a list here

  13. Hi my mum died recently aged 58. It was suddenly. I don’t work could I get any help with this I am applying for funeral payment but just wondering about this can I claim this. Any information would be great thanks

  14. My mother passed away on 9th January this year. Although I’m the oldest son family closed bank account and arranged funeral. My mother bank savings paid 2 thousands pound off and I had to borrow money off people in total another £1500 and gave to my grandmother. Who paid the rest of costs by cheque to funeral directors. I now owe £1500 and have applied for bereavement payment over phone. My mother had no estate and was on benefits herself. Am I entitled to a bereavement payment? Have filled form in over phone and was asked which account to be paid into as grandmother has no credit cards etc I asked it to be paid into my account if successful. If I’m refused a payment am entitled to appeal as told woman on phone I was in depth due to funeral. She asked if I cared for my mother. RRound the house and done shopping while mother was ill I said I did and was asked was there no other friends or family that could help me out. I explained no not now as family not close and Ivery a grandmother and younger brother who in custody at moment. If they refused payment even though mother paid national insurance contributions. Am I able to appeal decision? Thank you

  15. @Jolenejojo. the funeral payment is based on a number of eligibility criteria including: claiming in time (within 3 months), being in receipt of certain benefits or tax credits, your relationship with the deceased. More information is here

  16. @Dave. We cannot say whether you will be granted the payment or not unfortunately, it depends on many criteria, which is why you were asked so many questions when you applied.

  17. I have read what you had to say, however I’m also on benefits such as esa and pip and have no savings. I’ve rang department but they not helping surEly I’m entitled to a payment due to my mother s national insurance contribution?.

  18. @dave. The National Insurance contributions are to help the bereaved rather than the deceased so it’s the bereaved persons situation that is used to calculate any bereavement payments.

  19. My sister lives with my elderly Mother who is really poorly. My Mother and sister are worried that when she dies the funeral costs will come out of my Mother’s estate. My sister is on benefits and is worried they will sell my Mother’s house to take the funeral costs and leave her homeless. Could anyone give any info to if they would take the costs from the house. I need to stop them both from worrying. My Mother finished paying the mortgage on her bungalow, and there is only her and my sister live there. My Dad died 30 years ago.

  20. @tracy. Unless your sister jointly owns the home, the house will be included in your mother’s will as part of the estate. Funeral costs must come from the estate before any other debts are paid etc. It may be that unless enough can be found in other assets left in the estate, your sister will have to sell the property.

  21. My brother has very recently passed away while living in the Philippines with a girlfriend. We, as a family are in the process of trying to have his ashes repatriated back to the UK. He was not married to this girl and therefore I presume that my father, my older brother and myself as classed as his next of kin. Is there any bereavement allowance we can claim to help us with the cost of the repatriation? He worked in Uk for over 30 years but has been in Abu Dhabi then latterly Philippines for the last 24-36 months. He was 53 years of age when he passed away

  22. @BS. We don’t know of any grants for this. Were there any funds in your brother’s estate that could be used towards this?

  23. Well ive just been turned down for bereavement payments. My wife as just passed on at 37 and we have 5 young boys but because shes always been a mum and not worked I cant have anything. We been kliving off £26 a week for 5 weeks now. Am I able to appeal the decision as I still have funeral costs to pay aswell. Thanks

  24. My partner died on the 7th april 2015 ive applied for social fund and iam awaiting for a reply on my claim many people have said about bereavment payments but i wasnt married to my partner but i was with him for 23 years he was ill for 13 years i just think this is so unfair isnt there any help for me to pay for his funeral ….

  25. @Mark1977. Have you tried claiming for:The Widowed Parent’s Allowance? You can get this if you’re widowed under State Pension age and have at least one dependent child.
    Funeral Payment ? – You’re eligible for funeral payment if you get one of the following: Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, income-related, Employment and Support Allowance, Pension CreditHousing Benefit, the disability or severe disability element of Working Tax Credit, one of the extra elements of Child Tax Credit, Universal Credit.
    You could also try calling the Bereavement Service helpline on 0345 606 0265.

  27. My cousin has died,my aunt was estranged from her son, is 75 years of age and on a pension. She has a pension to live off but does own her own house. Is she liable to pay for the funeral? My cousin was in receipt of benefits and has no estate.

  28. My dad never wanted me to sign on and get a job but when he died my step mum made me do esa. Since heard that if someone in your house is on esa the widow will get a straight 2 or 5 k . Is that true . Has she used me

  29. @kazzy. If your aunt is unwilling to pay for the funeral and there are insufficient funds in your cousin’s estate, the council will usually arrange a public welfare funeral.

  30. Hi, my dad was divorced from my mum 25 yrs ago neither of them remarried, i am administrator of my dads estate, my mum paid for my dads funeral on the understanding we would pay her back, unfortunately she has the deeds to my dads plot and will not let us erect a headstone,she removes our flowers from his grave and bought a double plot to be buried with him,which we find upsetting as my mum and dad never got on,is there anything we can do she will not sell us the plot or even spk to us

When she dies I feel I will be left with the responsibility of paying for her funeral. Can I take a funeral plan out for her or are there any benefits that I could claim.

When she dies I feel I will be left with the responsibility of paying for her funeral. Can I take a funeral plan out for her or are there any benefits that I could claim.”


    Our response:
    Payment of funeral expenses usually comes from the deceased person’s estate and generally, the next of kin will be responsible for making the arrangements etc. If they are unwilling to do so and you feel the estate may not be sufficient to cover the expenses, then it might be worth thinking about financial arrangements now. A reputable funeral director will be able to advise you on any plans that are available.

  34. Can you make a claim for bereavement benefit over 12 months after your partner’s death? I did not know about this & have only found out a few days ago

    Unfortunately it’s difficult to claim anything retrospectively. Your mother might be entitled to some benefits – you can find out more by entering details into the Turn 2 Us benefit calculator

  38. My Mother died suddenly on 25/10/15, and has recently been buried. She was on a pension and left no funeral plan. Although I have an older sister, she registered the death, as a favour to me, but has washed her hands of the arrangements, and has left me to sort out everything and pay for the funeral. I have contacted the social fund for help towards funeral costs, but they rejected the claim due to me having a sister. I am receiving income related Jobseekers allowance and Industrial injuries benefit. My sister never had much to do with my mum when she was alive, as they fell out years ago. Where do I go from here?.

  39. My brother in law has just died. He is divorced and lives in sheltered accommodation as he was an Alcoholic. His next of kin are his two daughters who will have no money to pay for the funeral.

    Our Response:

    Unfortunately if you don’t claim any benefits yourself it’s unlikely you will eligible for funeral allowance. If your son had any savings or money in a bank account, you’d be expected to use that towards the funeral costs. Call in at your local Citizens’ Advice if you’re struggling to find the funds.

  71. My Mum, passed away early this month, my dad is 80 next month, does he qualify for Bereavement Allowance of £2000 ? Thank you

  72. Hi there, My sisters and I are in urgent help to pay for our Dad’s funeral. We have no other family to help. We lost our mother as children and now aged 23, 26 & 29 we are not financially stable to afford the funeral costs. I am currently unemployed (not claiming benefits), the middle sister works but has no savings and the youngest is unemployed and on benefits. We receieved funeral bill yesterday outlining it must be paid in 28 days. Welfare rights can’t help us, can anyone advise where we should turn for help. Government don’t think about the knock on effects of losing a parent so young and being raised in the system – poverty is real!
