Important notice on Pension Credits
According to Independent Age, there an estimated 1634 pensioners living in Wansbeck who are entitled to pension credits but do not receive them, amounting to an unclaimed £2,700,000.
For many, receiving pension credits can be the difference between being in poverty and being able to meet their basic needs. By qualifying for pension credits you also may be eligible for other benefits.
Do you think you, or a person you know, may be eligible for pension credits that you are not receiving?
My office will be running a zoom surgery on November the 3rd to consult people who believe they may be eligible for pension credit. If you wish to book a place, please get in touch with my office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please also include the following details in the email so we can check if it is likely that you are entitled to pension credits or not:
– Are single or in a couple
– Dates of birth of those in your household
– How much your current state pension is
– If you have any private pensions and how much they are
– If you pay rent
– If you have any savings and if so how much
The standard minimum a single pensioner should have each week is £173.75 and a couple is £265.20 so if your only income is below these amounts then you will probably qualify.
Please get in touch if you believe there is any chance that you or anyone know are eligible as it may make a huge difference to their quality of life. Please share this post to reach as many people as possible so nobody misses out who may be eligible.
