Pension Credit Hotline

Thursday, September 4, 2003

Meg Munn, Labour MP for Sheffield Heeley has welcomed news of a Government campaign to encourage our pensioners to claim their Pension Credit.

 

Speaking today she said

 

“The Pension Credit starts on 6th October 2003 and could mean up to an extra £400 each year to pensioner households.

But of course if pensioners don’t apply for it then they won’t get it. I am glad to say that over two million people have already applied but I would urge any Sheffield pensioners who have not sorted it out yet to call the Pension Credit application line on 0800 99 1234. You can even make your application over the telephone if you want to.  This is a great financial boost, make you sure you don’t miss out.“

 

ENDS

 

1.      The Pension Credit application line is open 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 1pm on Saturday.

2.      Pension Credit guarantees everyone aged 60 and over an income of at least £102.10 and £155.80 for couples.

3.      For the first time, Pension Credit will reward people aged 65 and over for some of the savings and income they have put away for their retirement.

4.      Anyone in receipt of Minimum Income Guarantee (MIG) will be automatically transferred to Pension Credit by 6th October. 1.5 million MIG cases have already been transferred.
