Thread: Motability for over 65s

  1. #11
    I can't claim my pension until I'm 68.

    When we talk about retirement/pension age and ability to claim working age benefits is it the age at which a person is eligible to claim their pension (so for me 68) or is there an earlier cut off?

    I feel it's unlikely that motability be available to new applicants 65 and over.

    To be honest I'm not sure I'll even be alive by the time I reach 65 or anywhere near retirement age.
    I meant new claims. What will retirement age be in years to come? l fear very high and price is now being paid by current and will be paid by future generations for excesses of past 15 years.

    I received full DLA at the age of 62, I applied for & I got my First Motability Car Then. I am just a couple of months short of 68 and still in receipt of DLA and I am on my 2ns Motability Car. I will be applying for my 3rd car next year as my current contract with Motability runs out in October 2016.

    As I was 65 before April 2013 I should be able to stay on DLA.

    I hate to give anyone ideas but I wouldn't be surprised if PIP eventually becomes a working age benefit that you stop receiving at 65 (or whatever age you claim your pension).

    Perhaps it happen. Who can forecast.

    Difficult times ahead and difficult decisions to be made. My suggested approach was freezing ALL benefits for 2 years. This could have avoided many of unfair actions.

    [QUOTE=RaspberryRipple;will change too?tly you don't want to terrify people or worse, give any DWP lurker ideas..
    Pretty sure I'll be dead before 65 and by then Pip will have been replaced several times over.[/QUOTE]

    Perhaps other benefits will change too?

    I don't think that will happen, unless the 'grey vote' suddenly lose the majority vote amongst the country's voters - pensioners still have power over the government even if they once were working age disabled.

    I wonder how many of the Motability customers are of pensionable age?
