Hi, A close friend of mine called Brian has sadly passed away, he was only 47 and suffered a heart attack. I write this because I need a little help, he leaves behind a wife and daughter, I vow to help do everything I can to ease the burden and help them through this, Brian received a "War Disablement Pension" and I was wondering would this pass on to his widow? Brian was the sole income for money in his household, he received his pension and worked a low paid job so it was topped up with "allowance for Lowered Standard of Occupation" Brian's widow is not a british citizen but does have a permanent visa to stay in the uk, a part of the decision to allow her to stay was she is not entitled to any benefits or money contributions from the DWP or the Tax Payer. She has a baby daughter and a part time job, however this is nowhere near enough for them to survive and now Brian has left us she is restricted in the hours she can work if any at all, therefore I ask: Do you know if this benefit can be passed on to his widow? Do you know of any help she can receive to survive? Is there anything else we can do? Has anyone gone through this and what did you do? I thank you for all your help.
