The Department for Work & Pensions can help with the cost of funerals in two ways.
The deceased's next of kin / responsible person can submit a claim by using the claim form SF200. This is available from the link above or by visiting the local Jobcentre Plus office. In addition the DWP can consider a crisis / immediate loan to help with costs associated with making the funeral arrangements.
A typical successful Funeral claim (SF200) may result in a payment of about £1000.00 (this will vary with your personal circumstances).
At A. Abbott & Sons we can help with all the documentation and will be pleased guide you with all matters.

Established in 1885, the company still operates from the same premises in Bedford Road, Rushden, but over the years these have been altered and refurbished to take account of today's needs. The Asher Room can be used as a Service Chapel free of charge or as a Catering Room. Our in-house catering team would be pleased to offer help and guidance. Further Chapels of Rest are available in Raunds, Finedon and Ringstead.
We are very pleased to be able to offer a bespoke funeral service to meet all your wishes. This could be a "simple" funeral arrangement or more full funeral service. You may wish to have a religious service or a non-religious or low religion service. Having been established for a long time in the community we have contact with every church and have our own in-house civil celebrants to offer immediate support.
