Are you receiving the benefits you are entitled to, such as for funeral costs or sickness?

Are you receiving the benefits you are entitled to, such as for funeral costs or sickness?


The benefits system is complex but you may find there are benefits you are entitled to and not claiming. We often find that many clients are not aware of the help they can receive from the state through the benefits system.  Here we deal with two separate areas.

Funeral expenses

You may be entitled to help with funeral costs,  see:

Help with funeral costs

As always there are rules relating to this, the deceased and close relatives must be on a means tested benefit.

However there can also be other means of help as the local Council or hospital can arrange a Public Health Funeral:

Money Advice relating to funeral costs

Sickness

There are also benefits available if you are suffering ill health and many are not means tested so it would not matter if your Partner was working.  You may also be entitled if your child was ill or you could claim assistance if you were caring for a child or elderly relative.

These are useful sources of advice:

Citizens Advice

Check your entitlement to sickness related benefits

It is worth checking out these useful sites as you may find that you are not claiming a benefit you are entitled to and these need not be funeral or sickness related but help with issues such as housing costs.
