TORIES END STATE PENSION VALUE

TORIES END COUNCIL HOME HELPS FOR MOST

 

..."At present, people have to pay for their social care at home if they have wealth of more than £23,500, excluding the value of their residence.

 

Under the (Tory) policy, people will have to pay for their social care only if they have wealth of more than £100,000 – but the value of their homes will be included as well. As a result, more homeowners will be liable to pay for the cost of home helps and carers provided by the council."...

middle-aged and elderly voters.

 

LABOUR'S REPLY TO TORY MANIFESTO RE SOCIAL CARE

Labour responded to the announcement by saying that people could not trust the Tories’ promises on social care. Barbara Keeley, shadow minister for social care, said: “In their last manifesto, they promised a cap on care costs. But they broke their promise, letting older and vulnerable people down.

 

TORIES AXED BILLIONS FROM ELDER CARE COUNCIL BUDGETS

NHS bosses have recently said that the money the Tories promised them won’t help alleviate the problems.”...

1950s BORN LADIES DENIED STATE PENSION 60 TO66 SINCE 2013 

 

Over 2.5 million women born in the 1950s have had their state pension age changed without fair notification. These women deserve both recognition for the injustice they have suffered and some kind of compensation for their losses.

 

PENSION CREDIT OPTION TO 1950s BORN LADIES

 

Alongside our commitment

to extend Pension Credit

to hundreds of thousands of the most vulnerable women,

 

COMPENSATION OPTION

Labour is exploring options for further transitional protections, to ensure that all these women have security and dignity in older age.

 

STATE PENSION BETTERED BY LABOUR

This must never happen again. Labour will legislate so that accrued rights to the basic state pension cannot be changed, but future benefits can.

 

NO MORE PENSION AGE RISES

The pension age is due to rise to 66 by the end of 2020. Labour rejects the Conservatives’ proposal to increase the state pension age even further.

FROM ANDREW GWYNNE - LABOUR NATIONAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN CO-ORDINATOR

2) Pension credit extended for worst off

DIGNITY FOR PENSIONERS

 

VARIABLE WORKS PENSION AGES

We will commission a new review of the pension age, specifically tasked with developing accessible retirement policy to respect both the contributions made by people,

the wide variations in life expectancy, and the arduous conditions of some work.

 

Pages 54-55

 

WORKPLACE PENSIONS

We’ll restore confidence in the workplace pension system and put people rather than profit at its centre.

 

Labour will end rip-of hidden fees and charges,

and enable the development of large efficient pensions funds, which will mean more cash for scheme members and lower costs for employers.

MINEWORKERS PENSION SCANDAL SOLVED

A Labour government will commit to an immediate review of the mineworkers’ pension scheme and British Coal superannuation scheme surplus, sharing arrangements between government and scheme beneficiaries.

PENSIONER HELP

 

Chapter 5 - DIGNITY FOR PENSIONERS – page 54

 

Labour will always be on the side of pensioners and help ensure security and dignity for older people in retirement.

 

As the Conservatives abandon their commitments to older people,

 

Labour will :

 

TRIPLE LOCK

Guarantee the

state pension ‘triple lock’

(MY NOTE: in law not just a promise) throughout the next Parliament, so

state pension will rise by at least

2.5 per cent a year or be increased to keep pace with inflation or earnings, whichever is higher.

 

WINTER FUEL ALLOWANCE – BUS PASS 

Winter Fuel Allowance and

free bus passes

will also be guaranteed as universal benefits.

 

BRIT EXPAT PENSIONS

 

Labour will protect the pensions of UK citizens living overseas in the EU or further afield.

LABOUR MANIFESTO - NHS AND SOCIAL CARE COMBINED

We will work towards a new model of community care that takes into account not only primary care but also social care and mental health.

 

LABOUR MANIFESTO - TOWARDS A NATIONAL

CARE SERVICE

 

TORY CUTS ATTACKED ELDER CARE 

Our social care sector is in crisis, with severe consequences for the quality of care, public finances, personal assets, pressures on unpaid carers of family and friends, and delays to discharging patients from hospitals.

 

Care services have been slowly

but relentlessly privatised.

In recent years, one in ten people reaching the age of 65 have faced lifetime care costs of over £100,000, with some homeowners paying the entire value of their homes.

The Conservatives’ cuts have led to £4.6 billion lost from social care budgets, despite rising demand.

Around 1.2 million older people have care needs that are going unmet.

Care in the community has become a cover for unseen neglect.

 

LABOUR MANIFESTO - SOCIAL CARE BECOME

PART OF NHS

In our first term, Labour will lay the foundations of a National Care Service for England. In its first years, our service will require an additional £3 billion of public funds every year.

 

The National Care Service will be built alongside the NHS, with a shared requirement for single commissioning, partnership arrangements, pooled budgets and joint working arrangements. We will build capacity to move quickly towards a joined-up service that will signpost users to all the appropriate services at the gateway through which they arrive.

 

LABOUR MANIFESTO - INCREASE SOCIAL CARE BUDGET BY £8bn 

Our first urgent task will be to address the immediate funding crisis. We will increase the social care budgets by a further £8 billion over the lifetime of the next Parliament, including an additional £1 billion for

the first year.

 

LABOUR MANIFESTO - BETTER PAY FOR PAID CARERS

This will be enough for providers to pay a real living wage without cutting the quality of care they provide.

 

It will allow implementation of the principles of the Ethical Care Charter, already adopted in 28 council areas, ending 15-minute care visits and providing care workers with paid travel time, access to training and an option to choose regular hours.

END OF LIFE CARE

MAXIMUM CARE COSTS CONTRIBUTIONS – FREE END OF LIFE CARE

enough to place a maximum limit on lifetime personal contributions to care costs, raise the asset threshold below which people are entitled to state support, and provide free end of life care.

Labour will prioritise brownfield sites and protect the green belt.

 

LABOUR MANIFESTO MORE OLD PEOPLE’S HOUSING – COUNCIL 

We will ensure that local plans address the need for older people’s housing, ensuring that choice and downsizing options are readily available.

FREE PARKING AT NHS ENGLAND HOSPITALS 

Labour will fund free parking in NHS England for patients, staff and visitors

by increasing the tax on

private medical

insurance premiums.
