steve noble started this petition to Department of Work and Pensions

State pension used on the death of the individual to be used to pay for their funeral .
This would enable families to bury / Cremate their loved ones without going into debt or relying on a state/ local council paupers funeral
Currently we have a situation where big business are making huge profits on the back of people loss .
As the fifth largest economy in the world we as a society can surely figure out a way to fully pay the expense of Saying goodbye to a loved one ..
We all pay national insurance (in the UK) the system of compulsory payments by employees and employers to provide state assistance for people who are sick, unemployed, or retired.
Why should death not be part of the national insurance assistance the government adds to the pension element ..
I'm not clever enough to work out the finer points of this idea.
If people reading this can add there thoughts I’d appreciate it .
If people reading this can think of a way to make this happen then let’s do something positive .
What happens to the state pension if you Die before reaching retirement age?

I believe when we lose a family member no matter what our personal financial circumstances we should be able to give that individual a decent send off celebrating their life.

Not as is currently the norm for most worrying about finding thousands of pounds to say goodbye. 

.

Please consider this idea and if you could join me in trying to make a positive change to the state pension .

 

Kindest regards Steve noble
