star this property answer text <p>This credit only applies to those who reach state pension age on or after 6 April 2016 because entitlement to the new State Pension, introduced on 6 April 2016, is based on a person’s <strong>own</strong> National Insurance contribution record, unlike the old State Pension scheme where it is possible to ‘derive’ a State Pension based on a spouse or civil partner’s contributions.</p><p> </p><p>Under our state pension reforms, introduced on 6 April 2016, over three million women will gain an average of £11 per week more State Pension by 2030. Around 75 per cent of women (and 70 per cent of men) who reach State Pension age under the new system in the first fifteen years will have a higher value State Pension when compared to the value of the State Pension they would have received under the old system.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department’s policy is to recover all debt where it is reasonable and cost effective to do so. Therefore, action is taken to try to recover any outstanding recoverable debt from the estate of a deceased debtor. I have assumed for the purposes of answering your questions that by the term ‘investigation’ you are referring to cases where the Department is seeking to recover overpayments from a deceased claimant’s estate as described below.</p><p> </p><p>I can confirm that after a holding period of 14 days from recording the date of death, the system will automatically check to see if it holds a correspondent (e.g. next of kin or former appointee). If a correspondent exists, the system will auto issue a request for repayment of the outstanding balance.</p><p> </p><p>If no correspondent details are held (i.e. where the deceased person was the previous correspondent), the system will start its weekly search of probate records for a legal estate. I am unable to give an average time for this process but if probate is granted within 2 years of the date of death, a claim letter will be issued to the Executor / Solicitor dealing with the estate – this is done automatically once probate details have auto-downloaded from the Probate Office. If probate is not granted within 2 years of the date of death, no claim will be made and the balance of the debt will automatically be written off.</p><p> </p><p>The current number of State Pension cases for which a search of probate records is being taken forward is not available, as we do not hold validated data that is specific to State Pension.</p>

In 2014-15 Network Rail was not consolidated within the Departmental Accounts and therefore the Accounts show that we funded them not only through the Network Grant but also this loan, which were budgeted for in CDEL and CAME respectively. For 2015-16, both of these items scored outside of budgets and instead we fully consolidated Network Rail’s income and expenditure in the Accounts. This is reflected in the change in capital spend figures in 2014/15 and 2015/16.</p><p> </p>
