Scotland webinar: Mix 'n' match: UC when you're pension age - 1 FEBRUARY 2022

UC is a working age benefit but some people over state pension age have to claim it. Before May 2019, if you were part of a couple where one was working age and the other pension age, you could choose to claim UC or pension credit and housing benefit. You no longer have that choice, but when and how these ‘mixed aged couple’ rules apply continues to cause confusion. Join CPAG in Scotland for this afternoon webinar.
