Paying for the funeral

Prior to arranging a funeral it is important to enquire into funds available from the deceased's estate. Clients should discuss privately about Insurances, Bank Accounts, Personal Pensions or other sources where funds may be available to ensure the funeral ordered can be paid. The Funeral Director will advise on company policy regarding credit facilities.

Help with funeral costs from the Social Fund

The Government change the rules and regulations about the eligibility criteria in respect to claims from the Social Fund every few years, therefore, it should be discussed with the Funeral Director if you intend to apply for assistance, so he can advise on:-

  1. Who is eligible to apply for assistance?

  2. How to obtain the claim forms and explain procedures.

  3. The sum of money the applicant will receive, what this covers if the claim is successful and advise on any outstanding balances.

  4. The appropriate funeral should he think the claim will fail.

  5. Company policy on paying by instalments where it is proven there is genuine hardship.
