Your Right

Your Right Radio Clatterbridge listeners were told this morning that they're right to claim benefits which are rightfully theirs. With pension and benefit rates set to rise on Monday, Stephanie Ward from Age Concern Wirral returned to the studios to tell Wayne Lowe that now is the time for older people to take action and make the claim. Research for the organisation's Your Rights Week shows that £2.5 billion in benefits is left unclaimed by older people each year and that two million pensioners are living in poverty. Age Concern Wirral has organised an action-packed week of activity to encourage people to take-up their benefits.
