Help with funeral costs

You may be eligible for an Exceptional Needs Payment​ to help you with the cost of a funeral if your income is low. Each case is decided on its merits by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection's representative (formerly known as the Community Welfare Officer) at your local office.
