A Gedling MP is urging older people in the borough to apply for pension credit – as the Government has updated its guidance.

Mr Randall revealed only around 63% of people who are eligible to receive Pension Credit claim it, making it is one of the lowest take-up levels for an income related benefit.

Last year, Randall signed up to become a Pension Credit Champion to support the charity Independent Age’s campaign on Pension Credit take-up across Gedling.

On Tuesday, the MP was hand delivering his Pension Credit Factsheet to Carlton residents on Manor Green Walk.

He said “I signed up as a Pension Credit Champion because I want to see every pensioner in Gedling who is entitled to Pension Credit receive it.

“I have created a Pension Credit Factsheet that explains what this benefit is, who can claim it, how people can find out if they qualify for it and how a claim can be made.

“I will be posting my Pension Credit Factsheet out to over 650 residents across Gedling”

Pensioners across Gedling are encouraged to check if they are eligible for Pension Credit by visiting www.gov.uk/pension-credit-calculator and can apply for Pension Credit online at apply-for-pension-credit.service.gov.uk/start or by phoning 0800 99 1234.

After delivering his Pension Credit Factsheet to residents in Carlton, Tom said “Anyone in Gedling who would like a copy of my Pension Credit Factsheet is welcome to contact my office and I will post one out to you”.
