Pension increase with pension credit cuts

In your article in February’s Mature Times on the annual increase in the state pension, there was no mention of pension credit.

Over the last four years, every time we have had a pension rise our pension credit has been cut.

Our pension credit has decreased by £8.59 a week over the last four years. Why are we being penalised like this?

This is very unfair to penalise vulnerable pensioners when they are struggling to pay ever increasing food and fuel bills.

Is there anything you can do to highlight this problem please?
