Claiming Pension Credit
Pension Credit gives you extra money to help with your living costs if you’re over State Pension age and on a low income.
You can get Pension Credit even if you have other income and savings, or you own your own home.
Pension Credit is separate from your State Pension (citizensadvice.org.uk).
Checking how much you’re eligible to claim
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has an online Pension Credit calculator (GOV.UK).
To use the calculator you’ll need details about your:
- earnings, benefits and pensions
- savings and investments
