  • What is Pension Credit?

    Pension Credit is a means-tested social security benefit. It is designed to provide those over qualifying age (see below for definition) with a minimum level of income and give extra cash to those aged 65 and over with modest incomes who have made savings for their retirement.

    Before 6 April 2010, the qualifying age for Pension Credit was 60.

    From 6 April 2010, the qualifying age for Pension Credit is rising gradually to age 65 (and then later to 66, 67 and 68).
