Helen Morrissey, pension specialist at Royal London comments on the Department for Work and Pensions’ announcement of a 12 week national campaign aimed at boosting take-up of Pension Credit. 

“Only about 60% of those currently entitled to Pension Credit claim it.  Pension Credit boosts the income of the poorest pensioners and acts as a gateway to other valuable benefits. However, there are so many misconceptions about who can claim it – these myths need to be busted if we are to boost take up of this valuable benefit.”
