OLDER PEOPLE MISSING OUT ON MUCH NEEDED SUPPORT – IMPORTANT 18TH AUGUST DEADLINE
Up to £3.5 billion of benefits aimed at older people on low incomes go unclaimed every year. Recent ‘take-up’ figures show that over a million pensioner households are missing out on Pension Credit- which amounts to around 2 in 5 of those who are entitled to receive it. These benefits can make all the difference and help older people stay independent and healthy, and how much more so during these very difficult times.
