Independent Age advice with Pension Credits and other advice

Over the last few months, we’ve heard from thousands of you about the challenges you’ve faced during the COVID pandemic. And we’ve been working hard to make sure that we’re putting pressure on the government to make sure that they’re prioritising the issues that matter to you.

During this uncertain time, it’s vital that older people get the support that they need. As winter approaches, thousands of older people will have to choose between eating and heating their home.

Over the last year, we’ve been campaigning to make sure that people can access Pension Credit. Too many older people still can’t access the vital lifeline.

"A lot of people are not aware it exists but receiving Pension Credit takes a tremendous amount of anxiety out of your life” – Veronica, 80

One in six UK pensioners are currently living in poverty. We believe that it is a scandal that this safety net is failing.
