Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I have an enquiry that comes up quite often now. If a person takes their private pension/occupational pension in full at age 60 years. When they retire will their state pension be topped up by pension credit if they then have none of the money left and no other income. They have the years required for a full state pension.
