SCOTLAND WEBINAR: Mix 'n' match - UC when you're pension age

CPAG in Scotland

This event is in the past

UC is a working age benefit but some people over state pension age have to claim it. Before May 2019, if you were part of a couple where one was working age and the other pension age, you could choose to claim UC or pension credit and housing benefit. You no longer have that choice, but when and how these ‘mixed aged couple’ rules apply continues to cause confusion. In this webinar we will discuss:

When do mixed aged couple rules apply

Who might still benefit from savings provisions

What special rules apply to mixed aged couples

Maximising UC for mixed aged couples

Practical tactics and considerations when advising mixed aged couples
