Help following bereavement
There is a lot to sort out following a bereavement and the most
pressing things are often financial matters.
If you are responsible for the funeral arrangements and you or
your partner are in receipt of certain low income benefits you may
be entitled to a funeral payment.
Other financial help is available in certain circumstances.
This includes: bereavement payments, bereavement allowance, widowed
parent's allowance and guardian's allowance.
Find further information about bereavement
financial help on GOV.UK.
The need for probate is dependant on the size of the estate
rather than the existence of a will. Financial organisations will
tell you if they need a grant of probate or letters of
administration. Find further information about wills and
inheritance on GOV.UK.
