Pension Credit - 6p per week
My Aunt has been in receipt of Pension credit. It was initially £5 per week. Then the pension from her husband's company increased. The Pension credit reduced to £1.20 per week. She has now received a letter to confirm that her Pension credit has reduced further...........to .............6p.........yes that is 6pence per week. So total £3.00 per year with letters and support packs sent though the post. My Aunt has not stopped laughing. Those three loaves of bread she will be able to purchase won't change her lifestyle, but every little helps. She is just concerned about who will pay for the stamps on the letters that confirm the 6 pence at 50 pence per shot. Not sure who will be in credit for that one!
