Funeral cost is often high and many people find it quite difficult to pay for the funeral in the UK. At Arrange My Funeral we will provide full assistance in outlining your options for how to pay for a funeral.
If you don’t earn much and haven’t saved for a funeral service you’re organising, then you can apply to get a Funeral Payment from the Social Fund. However, you may need to repay some or all of it later from the estate of the deceased person.
Who Can Apply?
Getting Funeral Payment from the government largely depends on the benefits you’re getting, your relationship with the deceased, and any other cash (not your personal savings), which can be used with the cost of the burial service.
In order to qualify for this service, the funeral must be conducted in the UK and the deceased person should also be a resident in the UK.
