Extra Information for Pensioners

Pension Credits were introduced by the Government in 2003 and can be claimed by single people of Pensionable age and couples where at least one of the partners is of pensionable age.

The Pension Service administers all claims and payments of Pension Credit.

This web page can only provide some general information about Pension Credits and how they effect Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit. More detailed information about Pension Credits can be found on the Pension Service's web site at www.thepensionservice.gov.uk/pensioncredit/home.asp
