Although there are no plans to uprate the age addition amount, this should be considered alongside the range of other measures and benefits that are available to pensioners over age 80. This includes Pension Credit. People who are aged 80 and over receive a Winter Fuel Payment of £300, instead of the standard Winter Fuel Payment of £200 for pensioners below that age.</p><p> </p><p>Additionally, the non-contributory Category D State Pension is available to those aged over 80 with either no entitlement to a basic State Pension or who are entitled to State Pension of less than £75.50 per week who meet the residency conditions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Carillion is the sponsoring employer for 13 separate defined benefit schemes which it acquired as it expanded. Most, or all of the schemes, will enter a Pension Protection Fund (PPF) assessment period during which the PPF will be testing to see if a scheme can secure at least PPF level benefits for its members without further support. If it can, a scheme will buy members’ annuities to pay for their pensions. If not, a scheme will transfer into the PPF with a consequential effect on members’ benefits; In general, those over scheme pension age at the date of insolvency get compensation equal to 100 per cent of their pension initially, while members below that age at the date of insolvency get compensation equal to 90 per cent of their accrued pension, subject to an overall cap.</p> more like this
