Funeral costs with UK government
In the UK, the government offer something called a Funeral Expenses Payment, for those who get specific benefits or need support with their financial situation. The funeral grant is provided to members of the family – depending on their relationship with the deceased – who are arranging a funeral in the UK, and already receiving at least one of the below benefits:
- Income Support
- Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Pension Credit
- Housing Benefit
- the disability or severe disability element of Working Tax Credit
- Child Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
To find out if you qualify for UK government financial support, take a look at the gov.uk website.
What to do if you don’t qualify for a Funeral Expenses Payment
If you find that you are not eligible for a Funeral Expenses Payment, you can apply for a crisis loan if you have been on certain benefits for at least six months. If accepted, a crises loan will be provided within five days. It’s also worth knowing you can only apply for a crisis loan if the deceased has left no funds or assets.
In the event that you don’t qualify for a crisis loan either, talk to the team at Alan Greenwood & Sons to find out about our Funeral Agreement.
