Other Grants from the Dept. Of Social Protection

Death Benefit

If a person dies because of an accident at work or occupational disease, Death Benefit may be paid to their dependants. It may also be paid to dependants if, at the time of their death, the person was getting Disablement Pension for loss of at least half of their physical or mental ability, regardless of the cause of death.

Dependent Parents Pension

If you were wholly or mainly dependent on your child for financial support, you may be entitled to a Dependent Parent's Pension if they die a work-related death or while receiving Disablement Pension. This pension may be significantly reduced if your deceased child was married or in a civil partnership.
