How to boost your income and save money

The Independent Age website has a lot of information about extra money you can claim and ways you can cut your bills. For help tailored specifically to you, call our free Helpline on 0800 319 6789 to arrange to speak to an adviser.

A range of benefits is available for older people. Start by using our benefit checker, or for a personalised calculation try the benefits calculator to find out exactly what you can claim. Our benefits page shows the full range of benefits in one place with short summaries, including Pension Credit, Attendance Allowance and Carer’s Allowance.

If finances are stretched we have a number of ways you can save money, including switching energy supplier, cutting down your water bill, or getting a free TV licence.

You may want to check you aren’t paying too much tax, and that you are making the best use of your pension.

If you’re struggling to pay your bills, you can also get support to help regain control of your finances and avoid falling into debt.

Money worries can be a source of stress. Independent Age can help.
