Martin Lewis revealed that some female retirees can get big payouts after being paid less than their pensions for years..
Married women who reached retirement age before April 2016 are considered a major group who may be eligible, but others – including widows, divorced women, and those over 80, whether or not they are married – must also verify..
Speaking on ITV, Martin Lewis, founder of Lorraine Money Saving Expert, revealed that one person who watched his program managed to recover a staggering £ 82,000.
Lauren Kelly said: « This one – if you’re claiming a government pension, is it helpful to verify that you’re not getting a low salary? »
Martin Lewis replied: “Well, this is very special for women who reached government retirement age before April 6, 2016. Women age 67 or older are effectively.
On the program, retired « Jill » said: « After watching the show, I decided to go to the government website. I didn’t find it easy to determine if I was eligible.
“So I sent a very simple letter to the pension office. I got a phone call from a young woman who said I was, in fact, underpaid.
Martin said: “I just want to use that to inspire people why it’s worth it.
« I have to be honest, that’s complicated, so I’m going to give you a broad look.
“In short, what is this if you are a married woman of this age, so that roughly 67 years or older and your state pension is not at least 60 percent of your spouse’s state pension, you should be eligible for up to 60 percent.
« In some circumstances, this may be retroactive. The delay depends on the date your spouse turned 65, whether it was before or after 2008.
« In the case of Jill, it was dated. This is just saying, and it applies to widows as well, how does your government pension compare to your husband’s government pension?. If it’s not 60 percent, then you should get that increase.
