Pensioner finances

Here in East Ayrshire, we look out for each other.

This means looking out for our older generation and working hard for them, as they have done for us.

Did you know that 4 in every 10 UK pensioners don’t claim Pension Credit – a means tested benefit that could top up their income? In Ayrshire alone that equates to as much as £28m going unclaimed each year!

No-one in East Ayrshire should be experiencing poverty.

If you or someone you know is struggling to pay for food, heating or other essentials, we can help.
