KMA often manages and conducts ghusl and funerals for Muslim families in the locality and beyond. Although we provide our services for free, there are instances when a family may need financial support for their funeral needs. For this reason, we have provided some information on support that your family may qualify for.
(1) There is a bereavement support of £2,500 lumpsum onetime payment from the government plus a monthly payment of £100 per month for 18 months, so a total of £4,300 by the govt through the DWP and it is quite easy to apply and available to mostly all qualifying people that do it in less than 48 hours.
To apply, either one can file the application online or the faster route is just to call the bereavement support line 08007310139 or 08001214433 option 3. The only information required is the name, DOB, N.I. number, date of death, address, bank sort code and account number, that’s all and within 20 minutes the application will be completed and filed by the call centre agent and the money will be in the account in less than 24 to 48 hours, if your application is qualified.
(2) There is also a funeral expenses reimbursement program, that is up to 60% of the actual cost of funeral that you spend will be reimbursed for which you need all supporting documents including the invoice from funereal directors. However, in order to qualify for this, either the deceased or their nearest kin (spouse, any of the surviving children etc) has to be on some kind of benefit such as universal credit, social housing, unemployment, child benefit and so on). To apply, one needs to call 08001214433 or 08009172222 or 08007310139 and they will guide it through.
