Reply To: HB/CTB run on


Just an aside. But isn’t this apparent assumption that people will smoothly move from IS/JSA to Pension Credit a bit naive?

Surely it is at age 60 that people’s retirement income starts to kick in, so I am not sure that people who are on IS/JSA before they are 60 will necessarily get Guarantee Credit afterwards, precisely because there may be new sources of income at just that point.
