Reply To: What does ‘entitled to’ mean?


Inga; I asked my local DWP Partnership Managers about this earlier. None of them knew the answer, although one suggested the lady claim Pension Credit now and thereby could avoid claiming UC that way. I politely pointed out that although   Pension Credit claims can be made early, that does not actually make the person a pensioner at that point!!!

Derek: very good point, thank you. This may well be the solution.

deh050: according to the state pensio age calculator :

Check your State Pension age using date of birth 03.09.53 You’ll reach State Pension age on 6 November 2017.

Your State Pension age is 64 years, 2 months, 3 days.
