How much Funeral Support Payment Scotland will I get?

Funeral Support Payment comes in two parts:

  • An amount for the necessary expenses for the funeral. This includes things like:

    • Burial plot

    • Cremation/burial fees

    • Transporting the body (only for journeys over 80 km)

    • Return journey for the person making arrangements for the funeral.

  • A payment towards any other funeral expenses. This is £1,070.60 or £130.65 if the person who has died had a pre-paid funeral plan. 

If the person who has died left any assets that could be used to pay for the funeral, there will be a deduction from the Funeral Support Payment. This is because the funeral is expected to be paid for out of their assets first. This is also the case if they had a pre-paid funeral plan or if they were entitled to a funeral grant through a war disablement pension.
