Pension Credit top up to help with living Costs
Do you or a family member get a State Pension? An estimated £6.8 million of unclaimed Pension Credit is unclaimed in Calderdale*. We want to encourage every one of State Pension age to check their eligibility, even if they don’t think they need any additional support.
Even if you own your own home or have some savings, it’s worth checking to see if you’re entitled to Pension Credit – you might be surprised! If you get Pension Credit you could get help with heating bills, housing costs and free NHS dental care and if you get Pension credit and you are over 75, you could get a free TV licence.
