Contacting Work and Income
After a suicide, some people find their life situations change significantly, such as after the death of a sole income-earning partner. If you now need income support, or assistance to find work, Work and Income can help you.
Work and Income may also be able to provide financial help with funeral costs.
To contact Work and Income for the first time, or if you have a question about existing support they are providing, phone or drop into your local Work and Income service centre, call 0800 559 009, or visit Work and Income’s website.
