Pensioners Missing £788 A Year In Benefits

According to research carried out by Just Retirement Solutions, one in five pensioners are not receiving the full amount of money they are entitled to.

The research found that pensioners who were not claiming any benefits could be missing out on £788 per year.

The problem would appear to be because pension credits are not given with pensions and need to be applied for separately.

Debt Support Trust has started a benefit section which can help people understand  what they are entitled to. If you are unsure then you can find out more information about each benefit here;
