Pensioners miss out

PUBLISHED: 15:58 04 May 2011

A REPORT said that eight out of 10 pensioners do not claim what they are entitled to because the forms are too complicated for them to understand or fill in or they think the government might ask too many personal questions

The above refers to pensioners who can’t even afford to keep warm in winter.

The Government should stop playing hard to get with old people’s money. – Max Nottingham, St Faith’s Street, Lincoln.
