What to do After 
Bereavement 

Finding the help you need 

We're here to make sure you have all the support you need when it comes to managing the finances of the deceased.

Registering the death 

The first step you'll need to take is to register the death. This must be done within 5 days in England and Wales, or 8 days in Scotland. 

After you've registered the death, you'll be given a death certificate. We'll need to see the death certificate so we can help you manage the accounts and finances of the deceased.
