Just had the letter from the DWP with next my Old Age Pension rate from next April. An increase of 4.60p a week.
I won't spend it all at once.

Yes, the brown envelopes containing uprating details are hitting doormats right now, so everyone be aware!

Lankou, your increase is more generous than mine (2.85 per week for income-related ESA, Support Group), but I was surprised to get anything extra at all:  thought that all working-age benefits were frozen.  Not that I'm complaining or anything...

So, what are you going to use your windfall for?

My state old age pension has 4 elements, the basic old age pension, pre 1997 additional state pension, post 1997 additional state pension, graduated retirement benefit.

What am I going to use my "windfall," for? Paying for the additions costs of a hard Brexit and no Customs Union.
