Redundancy payments for Pensioners

NeillawNeillaw New MemberRossendaleMAAT, AAT Licensed Accountant Posts: 241
I was wondering if anyone could help.

I have a new client who's been told by another accountant that someone working pensionable age still working isn't entitled to receive redundancy payments.
I've had a scout through conflicting articles on the web, some say they are entitled and others say they don't.
Has anyone had any dealing with this topic or have a definitive answer.

Thanks
Neil

    Capping redundancy payments at pension age is an offence under the equality act. It constitutes age discrimination.
