For older people

If you are of pension age you may be entitled to the benefits listed below:

  • State Retirement Pension: The basic State Pension is a regular payment you can get from the government when you reach State Pension age
  • Pension Credit: Pension Credit is a means-tested benefit for people who have reached the State Pension age
  • Attendance Allowance: This benefit is for people aged 65 or over who have more care needs than another person of their age; unlike DLA or PIP this does not look at mobility issues
