We all need support after the death of someone close. Bereavement benefits provide extra money to ease the financial strain after the death of a spouse or civil partner. You can get support even if you’re not on a low income.
From April 2017, a new benefit Bereavement Support Payment (BSP) replaces three benefits:
- Bereavement Payment
- Bereavement Allowance
- Widowed Parents Allowance

If you need help to pay for a funeral, you may be eligible for a loan from the Social Fund or a funeral payment.
