In 12 days, pensioners  will no longer be able to claim pension benefits because they happen to love someone younger than State Pension age. From 15th May, the Government are stopping couples with an age gap (where one person in a couple is over State Pension age and the other person is under State Pension age) from receiving the financial support of Pension Credit and Housing Benefit. Although the Government understands the impact of this they have shown no sign of reversing this decision.

All travel expenses will be paid and lunch provided. Email campaigns@ageuk.org.uk for details and to sign up.
