DWP used data it already held to pay a random sample of individuals their estimated Pension Credit entitlement, for a short period, without them having first claimed. The final evaluation findings were published in 2 reports.

This publication contains analysis of the quantitative net impact of the estimated payments on subsequent Pension Credit take-up, and its cost-effectiveness.

The qualitative evaluation of the Pension Credit Payment Study contains findings from research with participants that explored attitudes to this approach and reasons for subsequent Pension Credit take-up.
