Age Gap Tax protest: noon on Thursday 9 May outside Amber Rudd’s constituency office

From 15 May 2019, couples where one person is over State Pension age while the other is under that age won’t be able to claim Pension Credit or pension-age Housing Benefit. Instead, both people will need to reach State Pension age before they can claim Pension Credit or Housing Benefit. David Hannam from the 38 Degrees pressure group explains why this is such an important issue.
