It should be noted that eligibility for the over 80 pension is not based on National Insurance contributions.
The earliest that it can be claimed is up to three months before the claimants 80th birthday.
Payments from the over 80 pension will count as taxable income and as such, it may affect other benefits the claimant may be receiving.
Claimant’s must inform the government of any changes in their circumstances if they’re receiving the over 80 pension.
