A survey of MPs about their opinions of Pension Credit, an income-related benefit originally introduced by the Labour Government in 2003.
- The majority of MPs are in support of reforming and simplifying Pension Credit for claimants, with good indications of cross-party support.
- Approaching nine in ten (88%) MPs agree that the current government should simplify the process of claiming Pension Credit.
- Almost three quarters (73%) of MPs agree that in light of its low uptake level, the current government should reform Pension Credit to ensure all pensioners receive the support they need.
