More money in older people’s pockets

6 06 2012

Every year, up to £5 billion of Pension Credit, Housing Benefit and Rates Relief – money intended for people on low incomes – goes unclaimed by older people. If you’re aged 60 or over, you could be entitled to benefits you haven’t been able to claim before. So it’s well worth reading through the Age NI guide (link below) to see if you’re claiming all that you’re due. Benefits rates, and sometimes rules, can change at anytime. So even if you haven’t been entitled to these benefits in the past, it may be worth making a claim now. All figures referred to apply to this year (5 April 2012 to 6 April 2013).
