You can get a funeral payment from the government if you are on low income and need help to pay for the funeral you are arranging. How much depends on your circumstances and whether or not you qualify.
To receive such a payment you must be responsible for the funeral, claim in time, receive certain benefits or tax credits, and meet the rules on your relationship with the deceased.
Form SF200 must be completed and sent to your local Jobcentre Plus. You can get the form from either your funeral director or your Jobcentre Plus.
