Benefit cap after bereavement


I suspect there’s no UC solution but just wanted to check. Client’s husband passed away, leaving her the sole parent of a number of dep children. She has no work history. Husband was working prior to death and so he would be exempt from the benefit cap through grace period, but I presume now that he’s died, he stops being part of the equation when considering whether she should be exempt from the benefit cap?

Any other thoughts welcomed…
