The Government has extended the eligibility criteria for Bereavement Support Payment and Widowed Parent’s Allowance, helping thousands more grieving parents to access this support.
Previously only available to eligible bereaved parents who were married or in a civil partnership, these benefits are designed to help parents with the financial impact of losing a partner.
The law change will ensure more children in bereaved families are equally supported, regardless of their parent’s legal relationship status. Cohabiting parents with dependent children, who need support following the death of their partner, can now apply for bereavement benefits.
More information about this change is available on GOV.UK:
