Pension Credit

It’s estimated that 3,000 people living in Stockton-on-Tees are not claiming Pension Credit they are entitled to.

Around two in five eligible pensioners in the Borough don’t know they are entitled to it and they’re missing out on a collective £5million as a result.

Pension Credit is a tax-free weekly benefit to boost your income. If you answer yes to the following three questions you may be eligible for Pension Credit and other financial help.

  • Are you (and your partner, if applicable) of state pension age?
  • Is your weekly income less than £177.10 (£270.30 if you are a couple)?
  • Do you have less than £10,000 in savings?

You can get Pension Credit even if you have other income or own your own home.
