Have you heard about the planned changes to the TV licence fee?
The BBC is planning to start charging over-75s for their licence fee unless they are receiving Pension Credit. That means it’s more important than ever to check you’re not missing out on Pension Credit. Check whether you’re eligible using our online benefits calculator now.
We’ve launched a new range of guides about Pension Credit, Attendance Allowance and Council Tax that could help you have more money to live on in your retirement. You can download or order them here.
Extra money to boost your retirement income
It’s worth claiming even if you’re only eligible for a small amount, because Pension Credit is your passport to other entitlements. For example, you’ll also qualify for free dental treatment, vouchers towards glasses or contact lenses, and may even get your rent or Council Tax paid in full.

Extra money if you have a disability or health condition
It isn’t means-tested, so your income and savings aren’t taken into account. You can spend the money however you want – it doesn’t have to be on a carer. Lots of people spend it on things that make life easier, like taxis, fuel bills or a cleaner.
