Did you know that 1.8 billion pounds of pension credit went unclaimed last year?
Pension credit will help top up your money if you are of pension age, receiving state pension on a low income.
Pension credit is also what is known as a “gateway benefit” so if entitled you may also:
- Be exempt from paying council tax
- Get free NHS treatment and help towards cost of glasses and hospital travel
- Receive a cold weather payment of £25 when the temperature is 0 degrees or below for more than 7 days
- Get part or all of your rent covered by housing benefit
This will also be a good opportunity to introduce some form of socialising and beat the isolation that so many of us have experienced due to the pandemic, staying in isolating and missing out on much needed contact from friends and family.
Join our experts, Michele and Prince for a live chat online on 11 October at 10am for a 30-minute interactive session. You will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session.
