Hello my name is Ian, iv'e just joined this site as i will be coming up to retirement age in the next few years and hopefully get some advice. I have had a stroke and my wife has got bi-polar and receives PIP and EESA. Would my wife still receive her benefits when i become of pensionable age?, she is 3 years younger than me, i will be 66 in a few years.

    @bensam39, hello and welcome, your wife’s PIP will continue regardless of your income as long as she meets the criteria of the PIP descriptors. If you are still working now and your wife’s  EESA has not been reduced because of your income then when you claim your pension, your financial situation should not be affected but things can change between now and then, have you used a benefits check site or similar.
