Who's eligible for Pension Credit?

Pension Credit is for people over state pension age. It’s extra money that could top up your retirement income and help with the cost of living. 

People receiving Pension Credit can also get free dental treatment, as well as help with Council Tax, housing costs and heating bills. 

You may be eligible even if you own your own home or have savings.
