How do I challenge a Bereavement Allowance decision?
If you disagree with the decision made on your Bereavement Allowance claim you can ask for a written statement of reasons. If you still believe the decision is wrong, for example due to incorrect information being used, you can ask for it to be looked at again, and/or appeal.
The time limits are strict, you will usually be given one month to dispute a decision, so it is important to seek advice and act quickly.
