Re: State Pension Increase

Steady on with the cakes, folks.

I too have had mine, (same as yours) but two more letters arrived on the same day..

British Gas.......... telling prices are to be increased

Scottish Power......telling prices are to be increased

Waiting for the Council tax now.

Doubt there will be much left to celebrate with coffee and cakes.

Re: State Pension Increase

I have received notification of my increase and it works out at £4.76 per week (if my calculations are correct - I do receive a few pounds per week in additional benefits on top of the Basic State Pension).

Re: State Pension Increase

I got about the same rise, it's so insignificant that after all the rises in services and tax, I'll likely be worse off anyway. My kids will have to moderate their demands on the bank of Dad though....(As if)

By the time I retire, my pension money will be in India or Africa.

I made a mistake and it seems I have told you a big porkie!

The increase for me will be £3.77, not just the .77p! Sorry for misleading anyone.
So you lied about the £3 Mups, stashing it away are you so you can buy a yacht.

I already bought a yacht last year dongle, so thought I'd save up all my £3's and buy a Rolls Royce this year to take me down to the yacht.

But if youíre not already getting it, will you? My sister turned 65 last month but according to the Gov.uk website she still isnít eligible. They seem to have a cut off point. Unless Iím mistaken.
