Pension Credit – could you or someone you know be eligible?

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), is running a Pension Credit campaign to raise eligibility awareness.

If you or someone in your family is over State Pension age and on a low income, Pension Credit could provide extra money to help with living costs, even if you own your own home or have savings. It could be worth an average of £3,500 a year.   

People who claim Pension Credit may also be able to get: 

  • help with heating costs 
  • help with housing costs and council tax 
  • a free TV license for those aged 75 or over 

You may also be eligible for Cost of Living payments of up to £900.  

Thousands of people are already claiming Pension Credit. It’s easy to check eligibility, just visit Pension Credit: GOV.UK
