It is important to note that the Funeral Expenses Payment will not cover the entire funeral costs, and any shortfall will need to be funded from elsewhere.

What will you receive?

  • Burial fees for a particular plot.
  • Cremation fees, including any doctor’s fees.
  • Travel expenses to either arrange the funeral, or attend the funeral.
  • The cost of moving your loved one within the UK, should this exceed 50 miles.
  • Death certificates or other documents.
  • Up to £1,000 towards other funeral costs such as the funeral directors fees, flowers, coffin etc.
  • If a pre-paid plan is in place, up to £120 may be awarded to cover any items not covered by the plan.
