    Is this declared 13th Jul 17 at 2:17 PM
    I've been looking on the internet and I see conflicting info

    I'm recently widowed with children will hopefully return to work soon I know there are benefits out there to help

    My husbands employer paid a death in service payment to me ( his wife ) . This is tax free

    Is this something to be declared , as it's not in fact a saving . Obv want to do the right thing , a lot of it will be to pay part mortgage and also some house improvements .

    Any advice x
