Mainstream media journalists frequently report that state pensioners in the UK receive £9,627.89 a year – or £185.15 a week.
This is, as you might expect, not exactly true.

Pensioners only receive this amount if they reached State pension age on or after 6th April 2016 and have paid at least 30 years’ National Insurance contributions.
Anyone who reached the state pension age before that date, and who was, if male born before 6th April 1951 or, if female, born before 6th April 1953, will receive a state pension of £141.85 a week or £7,376.20 a year. They too must have paid at least 30 year’s National insurance contributions.
That’s a massive difference.
So, why do those who are older (and therefore probably in greater need) receive notably less pension income than pensioners who are younger?
I can only think of one possible explanation: because it is bloody impossible to pay for accommodation, food and heating fuel with an income of £7,376.20 a year.
I should know. That’s my state pension.
The UK Government is deliberately discriminating against older pensioners – even though they have paid the same amount in National Insurance contributions. The Government presumably hopes most of them will freeze or starve to death.
You didn’t know that, did you?

That’s not entirely accurate either. Everyone of pension age receives a State Pension = it’s not means tested. IF that’s your only source of income, or your total income is below £182.60 a week, you will also be paid Pension Credit (you have to apply for it), to take your weekly income up to that amount. It still sucks and BOTH amounts are far too low, but this is the current reality. Vernon has other income, so he does not need to apply for Pension Credit, hence not knowing about it, I suspect.
The British have the lowest pensions in the developed world
To be fair, the older pensioners in my area seem to be mostly very well off and are living in the biggest houses in the road with gold plated pensions. They would have had a job for life with a decent final salary pension plan and possibly early retirement, plus very low house prices.
Final salary pensions were trashed by Gordon Brown while he was Chancellor by raiding the schemes, slashing the amount that people were going to receive.
I enjoyed reading this statement, people are waking up:
We get emails every day from people, often very young people, who are saying: I can really see what’s happening in the world. Tell me what to do about this, but I’m ready, I’m ready to do something, I’m ready to do whatever it was that I came here for. I don’t know what that is yet, but I know that we’ve got big problems.
Twenty years ago people weren’t saying that kind of thing. There’s a huge rollout of some kind of an expansion of consciousness; it’s a morphic field that’s growing enormously and there’s something that’s changing.
I too am on the lower “older” pension, but I think the government is taking advantage of those who have SERPS and GRAD PEN that increase the amount. Also, they are taking advantage of a generation who have some privet pr work pension income on top.
In short, they’re taking the piss.
Those that are unfortunate enough not to have any additional pensions, presumably are picked up by the state benefits system?, or, as you suggest will be dead soon if not already.
We’ve been robbed again. That’s the baby boomer generation. You know, the old folk who have never had it so good.

My parents got the lower pension but they also got free boilers, free insulation and lots of other things because they were older. This is only part of the story being told here.
I am one on the lowest pension rate born in 1951. This is NOT discriminatory and it’s misleading to suggest it is. As a woman I was allowed to draw my pension from the age of 60. Today you must be 67 – that means you spent 7 more years paying into your fund than I did and I was paid 50000 in the 7 years before you even started drawing yours do perfectly fair. Whether a state pension is possible to live on is a different t question. No of course it is not. Hopefully you realised this when young and found a way to save before you retired including forgoing holidays and going out – as I did for 40 years. You can’t have it both ways. You complain we are all being made dependent on the state then complain the state does not give us enough!!!
Thanks for pointing out that women had an advantage of retiring at 60 – but the now oldest men did not. Of course, men and women now retire at the same State Pension Age but by working longer most of them have larger occupational pensions than women. People need to start saving into Pensions early on by buying more so they can go part-time at 60. There must be the option to go on working until you drop – part-time. Actually, work is good, cognitively.
“have paid at least 30 years’ National Insurance contributions.” – the qualifying period used to be 30 years but now it is 35.
They have always “moved the goalposts” on everything, this much is true. But these days they will increasingly put us in a head spin trying to keep up with it all.
They were expecting most of the seniors to be exterminated during the mandated genocidal injection program. You are right about moving the goalposts.
Sadly, I personally know of three “seniors” who took most of the covid/flu jabs in my little village that have very recently been diagnosed with serious heart/blood clot issues-all on anti-coagulants (one is hospitalised).The side effects of these drugs are quite something.
Moving the goalposts on retirement ages/National Insurance contributions is one thing, but the powers that be are now doing it on “gender identity”!!!
That is exactly why I identify as what ever the mostest victimized group of the day is. It’s difficult at times.
Britain has always defecated on the elderly.
Thats what happens when you obey a Banker-Government criminal enterprise started by Oliver Cromwell.
Now the population is to be replaced by Africa and the Middle East while the useless public sit there and take it.

How about Servicemen who didn’t complete 22 years prior to 6th April 1975? They do not receive any pension for the years they served. In my case, I served 12 years and receive no ‘works’ pension. The guy in the next bed to be on enlistment does – he was 10 months younger than me and so scraped past the April ’75 hurdle.
My 75 year old aunt texted me last night to tell me she and my uncle tested positive for Covid. I drove to their house at 12:30 AM and dropped off Ivermectin pills, HCQ, zinc, and Quercetin. She told me today her fever came down and that I may have saved her life. Uncle is feeling great. This is considered a negative outcome by the cabal. They would prefer my family dead. Their evil is no longer a theory and very much a reality. You can get your ivm by visiting ivmpharmacy.com
