Doesn't add up; You Say

MY mother died in December. I put in for a funeral grant, because I was the eldest. My brothers and sisters are all over 66 years of age. I'm 76.

My sister's husband get's a pension off the council of PS249 a month, because of it she lost her housing benefit and a number of other benefits.

I live with my son, who is a taxi driver who does not earn more than PS100 a week. I still have to pay out of my benefits, because I do not claim housing benefit. I was told we cannot claim a funeral grant.

Maggie did not claim housing benefit.

She go a PS10m funeral. Can you tell me how they did it? John Nicholls, L4
