NI Pensioners' Manifesto  

All men and women shall be entitled to dignity, security, and fulfilment in retirement.  

We therefore demand that politicians should:  

1. Commit to the eradication of pensioner poverty by:  

• Increasing the basic state pension, paid alongside other existing entitlements to provide some financial security for all.

• Restoring the link with the higher of earnings or prices.

• Bringing forward the automatic payments of benefits. 

2. Increase the winter fuel grant to reflect the high energy prices and introduce a system to review the amount each year in relation to energy costs.  

3. Provide improved access to quality social and long-term care to maintain dignity in advanced years.  

4. End unfair discrimination where it adversely affects the opportunities, goods and services available to older people.
