In Focus: Advice for Women  

Woman scoops £60k in back-payments from DWP

Webb said:“I would urge any woman who was divorced when she reached pension age, or who has divorced since retiring, to make sure she has claimed her pension and notified DWP of her divorce.  

“I’m delighted that Mrs Hooper has received this large windfall, but I have no doubt that there are thousands more divorced women who are not getting what they are due. It is vital that they claim a pension if they have not done so and that they notify DWP if they divorce in retirement.”
