You could get a Funeral Expenses Payment (also called Funeral Payment) if you get certain benefits and need help to pay for a funeral you’re arranging.
The payment usually won’t cover all the costs of the funeral.
What you'll get
Funeral Expenses Payment can help to pay for some of the costs of the following:
You can also get up to £700 for any other funeral expenses, such as funeral director’s fees, flowers or the coffin.
How much you get depends on your circumstances. This includes any other money that’s available to cover the costs, for example from an insurance policy or the deceased person’s estate.
If the deceased had a pre-paid funeral plan, you can only get up to £120 to help pay for items not covered by their plan.
