Qualifying Dates for Additional Payments

Back to all Motions

2004 Retired Members' Conference
18 June 2004

Conference expresses its concern that additional payments for items such as the winter fuel allowance are subject to the recipient attaining the specified age by a certain date. It feels that this means a number of pensioners do not become entitled to the payment until the following year.

Conference therefore calls upon the National Retired Members’ Committee to make representations to ensure that, in future, the allowances are paid to pensioners who attain the specified age during the course of that current year.
