At the Credit Union we understand that an unexpected death can lead to the family having to pay considerable unexpected funeral costs during a highly emotional time.
Subject to our lending guidelines Leeds Credit Union are on hand to help and can even pay the funeral director directly if that helps relieve the stress.
For practical help, guidance and information after losing a loved one, please go to https://www.leeds.gov.uk/residents/births-deaths-and-marriages/death/bereavement-services
You could also get help to pay for a funeral from a DWP Funeral Expenses Payment (also called a Funeral Payment) if you are in receipt of benefits and meet certain criteria - https://www.gov.uk/funeral-payments
Or if you wish to apply via paper application please download the form here and return to either our branch or via post.
