Tell the Government to reverse their decision


From May loving someone under state pension age could cost an older person a staggering £140 a week.

This is because the Government are stopping couples with an age gap from receiving the financial support of Pension Credit and Housing Benefit, when one of the couple is above and the other is below State Pension Age.

This is nothing short of an #AgeGapTax

We are urging the Government to stop this unfair targeting of mixed aged couples. Join us in telling them to reverse their decision by completing this form.
