    From the Telegraph last week, headline:

    “Government saves £600m on state pension payments as Covid deaths surge”

    Text within:

    “The Government will save over £600m in state pension payments this year following a steep rise in excess deaths among the elderly, according to the budget watchdog.

    The expected number of excess pensioner deaths has shot up by more than 45pc, to 90,000 this year, because of the latest surge in the number of coronavirus cases.”

    Apparently 2/3s of pensioner deaths are about 2 years early.

    The “savings” are small, but still, someone at the Telegraph saw that angle.
