Growing numbers gain from Labour’s Pension Credit

Tuesday, January 6, 2004

The Government has given an update of progress on the new Pension Credit. It guarantees all pensioners a minimum income, and then - for the very first time - rewards those who’ve missed out in the past because they have managed to save a little for their retirement. Across the country more than 2.4 million pensioners are now receiving it.

Here in Sheffield Heeley, we’ve now got over five thousand (5005) pensioner' households receiving Pension Credit, and they are receiving an average of £41.53 every week.

And all pensioners getting Pension Credit will gain from inflation-busting increases just announced - of over £3 a week for single pensioners and £5 a week for couples.

Claiming the extra cash from the new Pension Service could not be easier - it can be done in a single free phone call - on 0800 991234. The dedicated staff take details and then fill out a completed form for pensioners simply to sign, check and return.

Local MP, Meg Munn said "I am delighted that with Pension Credit so many pensioner families in Sheffield are finally getting the extra help that they deserve".

ENDS
