Pension Credit

12 December 2022 Last updated at 04:32

If you are over state pension age and have a low income, you may be eligible for extra help with living costs.

Pension credit is separate to your state pension and provides a top-up to your weekly income. Claiming pension credit can also help you to access other support such as housing benefit and help with TV licence and NHS costs.

Make your claim before Sunday 18 December to be eligible for an additional £324 cost of living payment too. Find out more here.
