My wife died on 7/11/2022. She had been receiving an Irish State Pension. I applied for a Widower's State pension and received confirmation on 03/07/2023 that the application was successful and I was entitled to a pension from 23/12/2022.
On 30/06/2023 I received arrears of £2623.14 into my Bank A/c. A portion of this arrears obviously relates to the period between 23/12/22 and 05/04/23.
I am currently completing a 2022-2023 Self Assessment for myself and I'm unsure how much, if any, has to be declared in the current Tax Return.
My wife died on 7th Nov. 2022. HMRC would told of the death via the "Tell Us Once" process. As yet I have not had a request from HMRC for a self assessment to be completed.
Would I expect to have been told of the need to make a return by now?
