Money can be tight, especially once we retire. The information on our website and in our free Moneywise guide can help you boost your income and cut your bills - by claiming extra money you may not have realised you're entitled to, getting help with health costs and housing costs, and finding free or discounted services.

You can try our benefit checker to see the benefits that might apply to you. Simply answer a few questions by ticking some boxes, and you can then read about the benefits that are most relevant to you. For example, you may be entitled to:

  • Pension Credit, which can top up your income. Lots of people who qualify for it aren't claiming it, so it's worth checking whether you could make a claim
  • Attendance Allowance, which is extra money you may be eligible for if you need help with personal care.

The video at the top of this page gives some advice on how to increase your chances of success when applying.

You can also use our personalised benefits calculator to find out more about what you can claim. Just enter your details to find out what you could be getting.

Or if you would like to speak to someone, just call our free Helpline (freephone 0800 319 6789). You can call us to order a free guide or arrange a phone call with an expert adviser who will help work out what you're entitled to and what your next steps should be.
