Check if you are eligible for a £3,000 annual boost for pensioners.
PENSIONERS MAY BE ELIGIBLE FOR UP TO £3,000 IN ANNUAL AID, BUT MANY DO NOT REQUEST IT.
With the current cost of living crisis, retirees are often forced to stretch their money.
Many people who have reached the age of state pension could benefit from a payment available to them.
Pension Credit is a lump sum that can be used to supplement low-income retirees’ retirement funds.
A common misconception about Pension Credit is that it requires people to have no pension or source of income in order to qualify.
Individuals may, however, find that they are eligible even if they have a pension or another source of income.
The issue is that an estimated one million pensioners are not claiming even though they are eligible.
As a result, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is urging retirees to see if they qualify for assistance.
So, what are the key aspects of Pension Credit eligibility? The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has outlined the details.
Most importantly, to be eligible for assistance, a person must have reached the age of state pension.
To be eligible, they must live in England, Scotland, or Wales.
Pension Credit increases a person’s weekly income to £177.10 if they are single, or to £270.30 if they are married.
Guarantee Credit is the name for the top-up, but it isn’t the only part of the payment.
If both of the following apply, certain people may be eligible for the Savings Credit component of Pension Credit:
Individuals who are single will receive up to £14.04 in weekly Savings Credit, while those who have a partner will receive up to £15.71 in weekly Savings Credit.
Even if they do not receive the Guarantee Credit portion of Pension Credit, people may still receive some Savings Credit.
Pension Credit is estimated to be worth £3,000 per year on average, demonstrating its value to the elderly.
While the amount received by each individual will vary, this indicates that individuals may be eligible for assistance and should check their eligibility.
