Getting Help in Paying for a Funeral

If you're on a low income and need help to pay for a funeral you're arranging, you may be able to get a Funeral Payment from the Social Fund. You might have to repay some or all of it from the estate of the person who died.

Further information is available from the Department for Work and Pensions. Their website provides a good source of information and can be accessed here. You can also contact your local Job Centre Plus on 0845 604 3719 for further help and information.
