UK - Pensioners are missing out on benefits worth £2.5bn because the system is mind-numbingly complex, the Liberal Democrats claim.

Liberal work and pensions spokesman Steve Webb MP said: “These figures highlight the mind-numbing complexity of the benefits system. The best solution to pensioner poverty is a decent state pension which all pensioners take up.”
