Bereavement support payments

Eligibility

You may be able to get Bereavement Support Payment (BSP) if your husband, wife or civil partner died in the last 21 months.

You must claim within 3 months of your partner's death to get the full amount. You can claim up to 21 months after their death but you will get fewer monthly payments.

Bereavement Support Payment has replaced Bereavement Allowance (previously Widow's Pension), Bereavement Payment, and Widowed Parent's Allowance.

View more information on Bereavement Support Payment and how to claim on the GOV.UK website.
