Press release


It is 'unacceptable' that two million pensioners in the UK are still living in poverty, a group of MPs says.

The Work and Pensions Committee says the figure is a third lower than it was in 1997, but wants ministers to commit to ending pensioner poverty altogether.

It is also calling for the benefits system to be simplified for older people and the compulsory retirement age of 65 to be scrapped. The government said it recognised there was "more to do".

One in five pensioners in the UK are classed as living in relative poverty. The complexity of the benefits system was cited as a key cause of poverty, with some 1.7m older people failing to claim money to which they are entitled.

The committee said it must be simplified, particularly for claiming pension credit, which offers an income top-up of at least �120 a week to everyone over 60. The allowance given to pensioners in residential care should also be increased, MPs said, from the current �21.90 to �40 "to allow them to live fulfilled lives".

Committee chairman, Terry Rooney said: "The government has committed to eradicating child poverty, now they need to commit to eradicating pensioner poverty. Many government strategies have worked well in the past, but are now showing diminishing returns."

Mr Rooney said people planning for retirement needed "far more advice" on "everything from how much they need to save, life styling, annuities, and how to change their electricity supplier". Therefore, the government's proposed "one stop shop" for older people must be set up urgently and marketed well.

A single phone line to allow people to easily claim all the benefits they are entitled to was also recommended. The committee also stressed the need to urgently abolish the default retirement age, saying it was "bad for society, bad for older people, and bad for the economy".

"While no pensioner should be expected to work after 65, many would like to," it said, and those who do must also be protected from age discrimination.

Pensions Minister, Angela Eagle said more than 900,000 pensioners had been lifted out of poverty since 1997. But she said the government would study the recommendations in detail, adding: "We recognise there is more to do, which is why even in these difficult economic times, we have targeted an extra �4bn to helping our pensioners this year."

Don't feel guilty about being kind to yourself - take a holiday. You need to give yourself time to relax, and to engage in activities that you find rewarding. It is sensible, not self indulgent to look after your self in this way. Doing things you have to do all the time has a negative effect on your emotional health. As well as the fact that a holiday or trip can renew the strength required to carry on in the face of difficult circumstances.

This month's funny..

An elderly woman died last month. Having never married, she requested no male pallbearers. In her handwritten instructions for her memorial service, she wrote, "They wouldn't take me out while I was alive, I don't want them to take me out when I'm dead."
