Ask your MP to take action on Pension Credit

All too often, we hear from older people who have had to choose between eating and heating their home.

Pension Credit opens access to vital entitlements such as the Warm Home Discount, which supports people to pay their energy bills during winter.

Our new analysis shows that people in later life who are entitled to Pension Credit but aren't receiving it, could be missing out on £88.2 million of the Warm Home Discount every year.

We are calling on the government to implement a Pension Credit uptake plan, and for the Work and Pensions Select Committee to investigate this issue. It's vital that they look into the low take up of Pension Credit.

Will you email your MP and ask them to support our work on Pension Credit?
