SAIF Dialogue with Dept. of Work and PensionsJuly 3, 2014 // No Comments
Letter from Alun Tucker to Members:
I have recently received a letter from the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP) requesting that all funeral directors include their bank details on invoices to assist in payment by bank transfer.
I suspect that many will be doing this already.
Following a number of members’ enquiries, I have raised the matter that notification letters that payment is due seem to have stopped and no reference is included when a payment is made, other than the deceased’s national insurance number. It is hoped that following my conversation with the DWP that a solution to this will be found.
As I have now opened dialogue with the DWP, please keep me informed of any difficulties you are experiencing.
The letter from the DWP may be viewed here: DWP Letter.
