Tell Us Once

When somebody dies, there are lots of things that need to be done at a time when you probably feel least like doing them.

We offer a service called 'Tell Us Once' which means we can tell government departments about somebody's death on your behalf.

We can currently only inform the following of a death:

  • Pension Service - to cancel a state pension
  • DWP

We will provide a contact telephone number so that you can tell additional people what has happened including other council departments, DVLA and the passport office.
