How much pension does a widow get?
There are two rates for the Bereavement Support Payment.
If you claim Bereavement Support Payment, you will get a first payment following up to 18 monthly payments.
The first payment is £3,500 on the higher rate, and £2,500 on the lower rate.
Monthly payments on the higher rate are £350, and on the lower rate monthly payments are £100.
If you get Child Benefit or are entitled to it, or were pregnant when your partner died, you will get the higher rate.
