Tell Us Once - new service for recently bereaved
Tell Us Once is part of a nationwide project led by the Department for Work and Pensions, and is designed to make it easier for the public to inform the necessary authorities and departments about a death.
In Oxfordshire, registrars will be able to inform over 20 different agencies on behalf of anyone who chooses to make use of the service, including:
- Pension, disability and carers' service
- Jobcentre Plus
- Overseas health team
- War Pensions Scheme
- Child benefit
- Child tax credit & working tax credit
- Personal taxation
- Housing benefit office
- Council tax
- Council housing
- Electoral services
- The DVLA
- Blue badges
- Adult services
- Children's services
Previously, once a statutory death registration had been completed, you would have to contact all the local and national government agencies to inform them of the death.
