Pension Credits

The Pension Credit scheme was introduced on the 6th October 2003. The new scheme was introduced to ensure a minimum guaranteed income for people of pensionable age. You can find full details of the relevant minimum incomes in the "Applicable Amounts" document in the "How is benefit calculated?" section of this website.

The scheme was set up to:

  • Reward people who have modest savings
  • Significantly increase the number of pensioners who receive additional financial help
