In a bumper pensions checklist in this week’s edition of the newsletter, founder Martin Lewis urges nearly one million people over State Pension age to check if they are missing out on a “vital benefit” worth thousands of pounds in additional annual income.

The consumer champion said individuals over 66 with a total weekly income under £235 per week, or £350 each week for couples, may be eligible for Pension Credit.

Nearly 1.4 million older people across Great Britain, including more than 126,800 living in Scotland, are currently receiving the means-tested benefit that could provide an average of £3,900 in support over the year ahead.

However, the latest figures from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) suggest there are still 880,000 eligible pensioners not claiming the benefit they are entitled to.
