Increase in benefits
Hello please can someone help me solve this because i am totally baffled, in february i recieved a letter telling me what money i was getting with the rise and they would pay it in on the 8th April and it is state pension and guarantee pension credit, that is what i usually get and today i get another letter saying the state pension will be paid in, no mention of my guarantee pension credit of £50.41, but along with the basic state pension of £116.28 they are giving me a Graduated Retirement Benefit of 56p a week, what is this i never heard of this before and why have they not mentioned my pension credit, does that mean they have stopped that, please help
