You could get a Funeral Payment if you’re on a low income and need help to pay for a funeral you’re arranging. Contact the DSS directly to establish whether you qualify for financial assistance and how much you will receive towards the funeral cost.
Please be aware that any costs exceeding the DSS payment will have to be met by yourselves. While we are arranging the funeral, we can assist you on completing the claim form. You can find out more information from the DSS download one from here, or we can provide you with one.
