Funeral Expenses Payment

1. Overview

You could get Funeral Expenses Payment (also called Funeral Payment) if you get certain benefits and need help to pay for a funeral you’re arranging.

The payment usually won’t cover all the costs of the funeral.

If you receive money from the deceased’s estate

Your Funeral Expenses Payment will be deducted from any money you get from the deceased’s estate.

The estate includes any money or property they had but not a house or personal things left to a widow, widower or surviving civil partner.
