Matt Rodda comments on Independent Age’s analysis that shows some of the poorest older people this winter are being denied financial support

Matt Rodda MP, Labour’s Shadow Pensions Minister, commenting on Independent Age’s analysis that shows some of the poorest older people this winter are being denied financial support, said:

 

“It is wrong that so many pensioners on lower incomes are missing out on vital financial support that they are entitled to because of poor communication from the Government. Winter is already a difficult time for many pensioners and denying people tens of millions of pounds worth of support during a pandemic and lockdown is unacceptable.

 

“The Government must get its act together and provide a clear plan to remedy this as quickly as possible.”
