Pensioners with a partner of working age will not be able to apply for pension credit from 15th May.  They will be entitled to apply for Universal Credit until their partner reaches State Pension age.  This will be a loss of approximately £140 per week.  This will affect couples where the oldest partner reaches State Pension age with a weekly income of less than £248.80.  For more information please click here.
