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 payment plans.
