Help to pay for funerals for people who live in Scotland

What is a Funeral Support Payment?

A Funeral Support Payment can help cover funeral costs for people who need to pay for a funeral and who live in Scotland and receive certain benefits. You don't have to pay back a Funeral Support Payment.

It can be used for funerals for adults and children, including stillborn children who died after 24 weeks of pregnancy.

If you live in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, you may be able to apply for a Funeral Payment instead.
