We as a nation are now experiencing funeral poverty and this is causing great concerns for many people. The DWP has changed the criteria due to the pandemic and anyone can make a claim that is in receipt of income related benefits and this now also includes housing benefit.
The contact number to make a claim is a Freephone number 0800 1469 0140 and choose option two.
The form can be completed over the phone or you can download the form at https://www.gov.uk/funeral-payments.
They can pay up to £5,000 towards the cost of a funeral, when making the claim they will need the funeral invoice as the DWP need the breakdown of burial costs.
The Jewish Bereavement Counselling Service is a confidential counselling organisation available to people of all ages within the Jewish community. Despite safe distancing and self-isolation due to Covid19, JBCS is able to provide counselling through telephone and online platforms.
The S&P Sephardi Community Burial Society organises burials and tombstone consecrations in Sephardi sections of the Hoop Lane and Edgwarebury cemeteries. We organise, oversee and advise on the various processes that are required by both Jewish and English law at this difficult time. Please contact the Burial Society office for further details.
