Widowed Parent's Allowance, Bereavement Allowance or Bereavement Support Payment

If you receive Widowed Parent's Allowance (received by men and women widowed on or after 9th April 2001) or Bereavement Allowance (received by spouses widowed on or after 9th April 2001 or civil partners bereaved on or after 5th December, 2005) the current rate will be prefilled in the box provided, if you receive a different amount please enter the amount you receive instead.

Bereavement Support Payment replaces all other bereavement benefits for new claims from 6 April 2017 and has two rates, £350 per month for people with children or pregnant and £100 per month for people with no children. Please enter the amount you receive in the box provided. 

You should enter the full amount you get in income from these sources. However, when calculating your entitlement to benefits the government may disregard (ignore) some or all of the money you receive from these sources. We will automatically work out the disregard that applies.

If you receive another benefit from the Department for Work and Pensions please make sure that you only enter the amount you receive from Widowed Parent's Allowance, Bereavement Allowance or Bereavement Support Payment in answer to this question. Income you get from other benefits is collected elsewhere in the calculator.
