Widowed Parent’s Allowance

//Widowed Parent’s Allowance

Money-images Widowed Parent's AllowanceThe government’s proposed changes should make you very angry.

Currently this allowance is paid after the death of a parent if the surviving parent has young children. A maximum of £111.20 per week is paid till the child grows up. If the child was very young this may be for many years.

New proposals would limit the payment to just 12 months.

Neither the grief or the financial need disappear after 12 months. Which heartless politician came up with this one !!
