The DWP stated that 1.4 million people currently claim the financial support in the UK. founder Martin Lewis also come out on Wednesday urging pensioners to claim the benefit describing the underclaiming as a “national tragedy”.

In his weekly newsletter, Mr Lewis said: “It’s not often I agree to team up with the Government on a campaign, but I was happy to offer assistance for this one, as it’s a national tragedy that getting on for a million pensioners, many of whom have been paying into the system for years, are missing out on a major income boost.”

“I’m not saying everyone will get it, but many will, and it is absolutely worth five minutes to check. And don’t worry, the worst that can happen is they say no. So don’t stall, just call.”
