PENSION ADJUSTMENTS
EDM #784
Tabled 24 May 2000
1999-00 Session
That this House, recognising that many of the nation's senior citizens experience serious difficulty in understanding fully the intricacies of the welfare benefit payment procedures, noting that many pensioners lose out in failing to make claims as required for benefits to which they may become entitled by virtue of increasing age, noting too that with the inevitable introduction of amendments to benefit conditions and the onset of advancing years, increasing numbers of the nation's elderly become even more confused in regard to these claims, therefore calls on the Government, when pensioners qualify initially for their national insurance pensions, to offer a service helping them to claim all other help available; and urges Her Majesty's Government to put to full use the advantages offered by today's information technology to institute a system of automatic triggering of the pensioner premium, the enhanced pensioner premium and the higher pensioner premium to individuals and couples so entitled as soon as they reach the qualifying age thus removing the prospect of them suffering loss by failing to register a claim.
