Mr. Willetts

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many pensioners aged over 75 years live with adults of below pension age; and what proportion that is of all pensioners aged over 75 years. [99397]

I have been asked to reply.

An estimated 0.4 million pensioners aged 75 or over live with adults below state pension age. This represents approximately 12 per cent. of all pensioners aged 75 years or over.
