Are you over State Pension age, or know someone who is?

Pension Credit tops up pension income and can help with day to day living costs. If you are over State Pension Age, you may be eligible to claim Pension Credit, even if you own your home or have savings.

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

  • help with heating costs
  • help with rent and Council Tax
  • a free TV licence for those aged 75 or over
  • help with the cost of NHS services, such as NHS dental treatment, glasses and transport costs for hospital appointments
