The Council’s welfare team have developed a booklet providing information on funeral and other costs as many people may experience financial worries following a bereavement, particularly if they have less money coming in that they had previously.
It is designed to provide advice and assistance with the benefits that are available following a bereavement, showing how someone may be eligible and how those benefits can be claimed.
It provides details on:
- Bereavement support payment
- Funeral Support Payment
- War Widow’s or Widower’s Pension
- Tell us Once bereavement notification service
