    They will need to payslips from when he was working. You can't send the payslips from when he retired because there isn't any. Sending payslips from such a long time ago can be a problem for a lot of people. If you don't have those payslips then ring DWP and tell them and they'll advise you the best way around this.

    The reason they're asking is because your partner working at that time will affect any income related top up you may have been entitled to.
