Bereavement Allowance

Overview

If you are recently widowed, have no dependent children and have not been getting a payment from Centrelink, Bereavement Allowance helps give you an adequate level of income while you make funeral arrangements, settle financial affairs, look for work and find out whether you are eligible for a longer term payment from Centrelink.

 

The payment rate is the same as for the single Age Pension and the same means tests apply.

 

This allowance is paid for up to 14 weeks from the date of death of the partner but can be extended if the widow is pregnant.
