HELP WITH FUNERAL COSTS
When faced with arranging a funeral there is often great concerns about how much the funeral will cost and how you will be able to pay for this. This is one of the reasons why we encourage the veteran’s funeral plan.
i. When signing up with the funeral director, that makes you financially liable for covering the cost of the funeral. We can help in various ways to ensure that you are not faced with significant debt and gain help with funding if applicable.
ii. We can put you in contact with a funeral director who provides affordable funerals for veterans and who have links with the services and will ensure the highest services at the best possible prices. These are truly independent and not a family name that is indeed a corporate company which is often the case.
iii. We can advise on the Bereavement Grant that is available from the Government to help towards the cost of the funeral and how to gain this. It is means tested and we have the forms for the grant.
iv. We can put you in touch with the service organisations that deal with supporting veterans families and they will work with other service organisations to see if they can contribute a small amount towards the cost of the funeral
v. We have the Veterans Funeral Fund which can assist with a grant towards costs of the funeral or specific parts of the funeral.
Please call us for information on assistance if required.
