Bereavement Benefit

Hi just in case anyone is not aware you may be entitled to claim Bereavement Benefit which is a lump sum payment & monthly amount for 18 months. It is not means tested & based on the deceased national insurance record. It’s worth trying to claim it . Alison

Really easy to claim. Got mine sorted within days

If I am understanding it correctly, the survivor has to be under state pension age in order to claim.

Yes that is correct - sorry for any confusion.
