The DWP is forcing loved ones to pay dead relatives’ rent

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is forcing family members to pay weeks of rent for their deceased relatives by stopping the Universal Credit payments that would have covered it.
The DWP: penalising grief?

This latest revelation was exposed via a parliamentary question from SNP MP Ronnie Cowan. He had asked the DWP:

How many universal credit applicants have died during the period that their application was being assessed and as a result have received a zero payment for the days during that period when they were alive.
