  • Foreign pension arrears

    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.
  • Self assessment required for deceased spouse?

    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?
