Can I get another social welfare payment as well as a Widow's, Widower's or Surviving Civil Partner's Contributory Pension?

You can usually only get one social welfare payment at a time.

However, you may get a reduced rate of Jobseeker's, Illness, Occupational Injury, Maternity, Health and Safety or Adoptive Benefit, for a limited time as well as the Widow's, Widower's or Surviving Civil Partner's Contributory Pension.

Since September 2007, it is possible to get a half rate Carer's Allowance along with this pension if you are providing full-time care and attention to somebody.
