Meg welcomes new Pensioner Credit

Friday, January 17, 2003

2003 will see big changes helping thousands of pensioners in Sheffield, making them better off

Commenting on the changes, Labour and Co-operative MP Meg Munn said

“The new Pension Credit is the biggest improvement in help for thousands of pensioners for decades.

Pensioner couples with a total income up to nearly £204 a week and any single pensioner with an income of £139 or less stands to benefit from the pension credit.

From October the average gain from the new credit will be £8 extra a week.
Some pensioner couples could be up to £20 a week better off.
 
I am particularly pleased that the new Pension Credit will help pensioners with small works pensions and modest savings.

For years too little was done to help the pensioners who have saved a little but then found they were unrewarded for their thrift as income support was withdrawn.  So many pensioners felt aggrieved that while others received extra help they lost out because they had saved and set aside some savings.

I urge local pensioners to make sure they apply for this new pension credit, national leaflets will be available soon, explaining the process."

Ends
