Hi Evry1,

I am after some advice (obviously).

 

This morning I received a letter from the DWP.

They advised me that from March 2018, I will be eligible for pension credit.

 

I curently received Conts ESA , basic rate due to private pension.

I also receive Ind. Inj. Disability Benefit. .

 

The DWP have not given me any advice in the letter,

ie. How much I would receive etc.

 

They have merely said if I dont wish to claim it, I need do nothing.

 

However, get in contact with Pension Credit Office ; if I want to claim it.

 

So now,

I am wondering should I claim Pension Credit or stay with the ESA .

 

A little background - I have a serious lower spine injury.

I have had three lots of surgery on it.

Hence I have been placed in the Chronic group and dont have to go for medicals anymore.

 

My total benefits are £800 per 4 weeks.

I also receive £800 net from my pension.

Should I stay with the benefits or claim pension credit.

I will be 65 yrs in September 2018 .

 

Your thoughts plse. -

 

Cheers - Scousegeezer
