Could be she has heard of some Thai widow getting a spouse pension from a husbands private pension?

The lady in question does get money from his job pension, I sorted that, but she cannot understand why not from his state pension. She did not understand that she had never paid into the N.I. system, and in any case below the women retirement age of 65.

Actually, the Conservatives are desperate to hang onto the grey vote so they won't do anything to imperil that, at least this side of a convincing election victory. Afterwards, who knows?

My pension is going up with CPI, ( i'm on a long holiday in Asia) not sure what the OP is talking about. It must be a benefit that is related to the OAP, but not part of the basic payment. No need to panic old folks , it would be ;political suicide for any of the normal payment to be reduced, rather it will always increase.
