Find out if you qualify for Pension Credit
It’s estimated that around 17,000 Derbyshire pensioners are entitled to, but not claiming, the pension top up, with the take-up rate for those aged over 75 at only 60%.
To help you find out if you qualify, we have staff on hand who can support you to claim your share of £41million a year in unclaimed benefits.
Pensioners who qualify for Pension Credit get on average around £2,500 a year – just under £250 a month.
There are lots of reasons why you might not be claiming, many of which are myths.
You could still qualify for Pension Credit if:
- you have significant savings (in the tens of thousands of pounds)
- you’re a couple with up to £460 a week coming in, but you both qualify for disability benefits and are carers for each other
- you own your own home
Putting in a phone call or emailing us could potentially lead you to being thousands of pounds better off.
