Help end the £3.5 billion Pension Credit Scandal
Pension Credit is a vital lifeline to many but the sad reality is that 2 in 5 older people entitled to it, do not receive it. This money would make a real difference to their quality of life.
The Government admits that every year £3.5 billion of Pension Credit does not reach the older people it is supposed to help. Despite knowing this, the Government has failed to take adequate action.
It is time for the Government to take the necessary steps to improve this failing system.
Independent Age is calling on the Government to reform Pension Credit and put more money into the pockets of older people.
Please write to your MP today and help us ensure more older people get the money that they are entitled to.
