Bereavement benefits

If you are widowed or become a surviving partner, you may be entitled to bereavement benefits.

If you are widowed or become a surviving partner, you may be entitled to bereavement benefits. You may claim these benefits even if are working. All bereavement benefit claims must be made on form BB1. You can get this from your local Jobcentre Plus office or from the GOV.UK - Bereavement benefits website. It is important to note that there are time limits affecting all benefit claims. If you apply too late it may affect the amount you receive or you may receive nothing at all.

Bereavement Allowance/Widowed Parent's Allowance must be claimed within three months of the death of your spouse or civil partner. To receive Widowed Parent's Allowance you must be the main Child Benefit payee. If your late spouse or civil partner was the main payee for Child Benefit you will need to reclaim Child Benefit in your own name.
