If you are of State Pension age you may be entitled to Pension Credit and other benefits like Council Tax Support. You may be eligible for benefits even if you have modest savings, a retirement income or own your own home.

Pension Credit can provide extra money for living costs and access to other help available. Around a third of eligible pensioners don’t claim Pension Credit or other benefits – often because they don’t know they can.

Pension Credit can provide you with access to a range of other benefits such as help with housing costs, council tax, heating bills and for those aged 75 or over, a free TV licence.
