Promoting Pension Credit
We know that some people may not be getting Pension Credit when they might be eligible for it. We’re committed to changing that.
The aim of this material is to raise awareness of Pension Credit and help dispel some common misconceptions that might deter people from claiming it by highlighting that:
• people of State Pension age may be entitled to Pension Credit even though they may have modest savings, or a retirement income or own their own home
• an award of Pension Credit can provide 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
If you are over State Pension age, or with those supporting them, or know anyone who might be eligible, then please encourage them to find out more. Simply contact our Welfare Rights Officer, Angela to get a benefit check.
