To be eligible for pension credit, a person must live in England, Scotland and Wales and have reached statutory retirement age.

The benefit tops up a person’s weekly income to £182.60 if they are single, or a joint amount of £278.70 if they have a partner.

People with higher incomes are still eligible for support if they have a disability or are carers.

A person’s income includes their state pension, other pensions, income from employment and self-employment.
