We've been asked to comment on a radio segment on how the changes to pension credit are affecting couples, and are wondering if any gransnetters have any stories to share about how this could affect anyone you know.

How will the change in age requirements affect you or anyone you know?
Is your lifestyle going to change?
Will it be more difficult to get by?

Your insight will be greatly appreciated.

I have seen posts elsewhere, from guys joking that that’s the end of them dating younger women.

I think I read that a few people could lose as much as £700 a month. That's an awful lot of money and will really hit people hard.

However, I need to read more about it to find out the supposed justification for such a move.
