European Economic Area nationals

Date: 
24 April 2019

Usually to get funeral expense assistance the funeral must take place in the UK, but some European Economic Area (EEA) nationals can qualify if the funeral takes place in the EEA or Switzerland. This applies if you:

  • are a worker or you are self-employed, or
  • count as a family member of a worker or self-employed person, or
  • have a permanent right to reside in the UK.
