Hello to you all,

I'm 65 this coming Sunday and I had to phone the pension department to claim my pension,

 

what i would like to know do I have to phone any other department because I get ESA, DLA, or will they automatically stop

 

. I don't want to get into trouble for not notifying them.

Thank you.pin 62

Esa stops at state pension age, so as long as it's state pension you're claiming then you're fine. If you haven't claimed pension credit, you may want to look into that.

 

If it's personal/occupational pension then once you receive it you will need to notify ESA/pension credit, dependent on what you're claiming. Pensions don't affect dla. You will also need to report any changes in income to the LA if you receive housing benefit or council tax reduction.

You should also look into whether you may qualify for pension credit with the level of income you (and any partner) has.
