They notify 32 local and central government services of the death for you. This includes: passports, benefits, driving Licences and much more. The services use this information to update their records, to end services, benefits and credits.

This is a confidential government service. Video relay is available for British Sign Language (BSL) speakers.  Read more on InformationNOW about what to do what to do when someone dies.
