Is there a payment or help I receive looking after my sister or towards funeral costs for my mum?
Hi Ainsley1212. Welcome to the forum.
This is somewhat outside our area of expertise. I'm no expert, but I believe there are some allowances that you might be eligible to claim. However, the benefit system is complex, to say the least.
I suggest that a better place to look for help is the Citizen's Advice Bureau. They can offer you free advice and guidance on issues such as this, and they will have more experience. I suggest a Google search for "Citizen's Advice Bureau" should find your nearest branch. You can then phone, explain your issue, and make an appointment with an advisor.
The only thing I can add to Renata's and Telemando's posts is that MacMillan have a benefits advice service which may be able to help. I found our local advisor was brilliant and extremely helpful. Their website will help you find your nearest advisor.
