We use those oil-filled electric radiators - with timer and thermostat. They're fine for heating a closed room, the bedroom before you get up or go to bed and aren't that expensive to run...

Re: DWP and State Pension - hope we've done the right thing

I wonder if that was because it was associated with the pension you were already claiming, rather than Mrs Wol claiming independently?

I know my mum was paid her own pension as a result of my...

Re: DWP and State Pension - hope we've done the right thing

I have not taken my pension, which I was entitled to 5 years ago. I deferred my pension by not claiming it. I am now claiming it and am entitled to 5 years' worth of increased pension or lump sum....

Re: DWP and State Pension - hope we've done the right thing
