Age UK Cheshire East is calling on pensioners living on a low income with a partner of working age to check their eligibility for Pension Credit and Housing Benefit

Age UK Cheshire East is calling on pensioners living on a low income with a partner of working age to check their eligibility for Pension Credit and Housing Benefit and put in a claim before the Government changes the rules next month.

The charity says the change will see the right to claim Pension Credit and Housing Benefit withdrawn from future claimants who to have a partner who hasn’t yet reached their own pensionable age.

Age UK Cheshire East is warning that this could have a devastating impact on local residents.
