Commenting on an announcement by the Department of Work and Pensions about changes to Pension Credit, George McNamara, Director of Policy and Influencing at Independent Age, says:

“With 2 out of 5 older people who are eligible for Pension Credit not receiving it, and with pensioner poverty alarmingly high, it would be better for the government to focus on getting much-needed financial support to them, rather than changing the rules so that even fewer older people receive this vital benefit.”
