How it works

You may be able to get Bereavement Support Payment if your partner has died. It has replaced the following benefits:

  • Widowed Parent’s Allowance - if you already get this, your payments will continue until you’re no longer eligible
  • Bereavement Allowance (previously Widow’s Pension)
  • Bereavement Payment
