Check what to do after a death - how to register the death, notify government departments and manage financial issues.
Check what to do if:
To stop or change benefits payments you can tell the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) about the death straight away.
The Tell Us Once service allows you to inform all the relevant government departments when someone dies.
You will also need to tell banks, utility companies, and landlords or housing associations yourself.
You might be eligible for financial help.
Check if you can get:
Bereavement Support Payment if your spouse or civil partner has died
Guardian's Allowance if you're bringing up a child whose parents have died
Deal with your own benefits, pension and taxes
Your tax, benefit claims and pension might change depending on your relationship with the person who died.
Manage your tax, pensions and benefits if your spouse has died
Check if you need to apply to stay in the UK
If your right to live in the UK depends on your relationship with someone who died you might need to apply for a new visa.
Check the rules if:
you are in the UK as the partner of a British Citizen or someone with indefinite leave to remain
Contact UKVI to check the rules for other visas
