Caroline Abrahams, the charity director at Age UK, explained: “There are such a lot of good reasons to place in a claim for Pension Credit. Many older individuals are reliant on the state pension as their fundamental source of income and just don’t have the flex of their funds to deal with the escalating cost of living.
“Putting in a successful claim couldn’t only give a big boost to your weekly income, it also opens the door to a wealth of additional support including help with energy bills.
“We all know that around three quarters of 1,000,000 pensioners are missing out on this necessary profit in the meanwhile, so we’re urging anyone who’s experiencing any financial issues in anyway to place in a claim immediately.
“The earlier people act, the earlier they are going to discover in the event that they are eligible for among the additional financial help that’s now available which could have a life-changing impact on their funds over the approaching months.”
