We understand that telling people about the death of a loved one can be challenging.
We also understand that having to repeat that information for various government departments can be difficult.
Spending time on the phone having the same conversation, over and over, can be distressing.
That is why we are supporting the Government’s Tell Us Once (TUO) scheme.
TUO means that families are able to inform local and central government of a death just once.
This can be done:
- by phone
This information can then be shared with up to 32 other government services, so you don’t have to.
Organisations that can be notified include:
Adult Social Services
Council Tax Reduction
Money owed to council
Pension benefits and allowances
Working age benefits and allowances
HM Passport Office
My CSP, Veterans UK, NHS, Scottish Public Pensions agency, Local Gov Pensions
