Britain's elderly forced into poverty by "failing" pension system

BRITAIN’S elderly are being failed by the pensions system and losing billions of pounds in unclaimed benefits, a damning report out today (Tuesday) claims.

Around a third of people eligible for a top up on their state pension don’t claim with many simply unaware they are entitled, according to ‘Later Life Ambitions’.

The document slams  the pensions system as “not the comprehensive safety net that most people expect” and warns of the growing elderly poverty crisis.
