As some of you will know, Pension Credit is a top up for our most vulnerable pensioners. It is worth an average of £3,300 a year, and also opens up a suite of other benefits such as help with housing costs, council tax reduction schemes, heating bills and a free over-75s TV licence.
Here in Sevenoaks and Swanley there are already 1,382 claimants of Pension Credit, but figures from the Department of Work and Pensions estimate that around 25% people who could claim the extra help do not currently do so.
If you, a family member or a friend are eligible for Pension Credit, please do apply by visiting: http://ow.ly/mfxs50JxO0x. And if you need any help, or have any questions, do contact my office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
