Reply To: Pensioner on UC

John Boxall

Its probably indicative of the general state of UC administration that this situation has been able to go on for so long.

We run a report each month of claimants who are reaching Pension Age on both HB & UCCTS and then send out a review form so we can identify anyone with a HB entitlement from Pension age and ensure we do a proper ‘change of circumstances’ with all information collected.

Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is withered, the god of day goes down upon the dreary scene, and—and in short you are for ever floored.
