My dad who claims state pension, forgot to inform the tax people about me (his son) moving in approximately 5 years ago and from the information they provide it doesn't appear that they are aware that he has £10,000 savings. What is likely to happen?
Thanks for your question
Can you clarify what your Dad is claiming, as state pension is paid due to contributions made throughout your Dads working life, and no amount of savings or other incomes, has any bearing on this entitlement.
Do you mean pension credit or some other benefit ?
Yes sorry would be pension credit.
Also missed off how many years ago I move in, it was around 5 years ago.
Thank you so much for your advise, my dad was fearing the worst so hearing this is a big relief for him and us all.
Thank you again for your help it's much appreciated.
