    Unexpected advice from the Daily Mail

    "There's no shame in claiming every penny of support you are entitled to get from the Government."

    Lots of other blinding flashes of the obvious in there too. For example: Shop at cheaper shops.

      Why pay for what you can read for a few annoying adverts?

        There isn't if you have been a net taxpayer.
        It when you have claimed and used more than you ever paid in tax that you might have shame.

            With that mantra , then MOST people will die in shame. Do you know how much end of life care costs the healthcare system?

            I'm no expert, but just the power of compound interest and sensible investment should make sure that EVERYONE can take out more than they put in, over a working lifetime. Don't forget that some benefits are taxed too.

              What is classy if you are rich but shameful if you are poor?

              Getting money from the government.

                Very few people, as a proportion of the population, need end of life care that is fully funded by the state. So yes, whilst end of life care can be costly, if you have money then most of that cost is paid privately.
