You are right the beneifits agency do still make funeral payments, but these days you have to pay them back, which I admit winds me up. My mum was a land army girl, she worked at Vickers during WW11 and was caught in the middle of an air raid there where she ended up losing half of her ear. During the same raid her youngest brother was killed. None of this matters today, she worked her entire life until age got the better of her at 73. She never took a day sick and never claimed any kind of benefit, until retirement when she was entitled to a measly state pension.
