Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
I am very sorry to say, that whilst you husband is in prison, his personal pension payments are suspended and he will not receive them. Unfortunately you are not able to receive then instead either.
However, whist he is in prison, then depending on your own personal circumstances, you may be able to claim pension credits yourself or some other benefits. You should make contact with the DWP and see what you may be able to claim under your personal circumstances.
Thank you for using Just Answer and for allowing me to assist you with your legal enquiry. I am pleased I was able to be of assistance.
