What you need to know

Start now on the Pension Credit calculator

The calculator will give you an idea of how much Pension Credit you could get.

You can’t use this calculator if:

  • you live in a care home - contact the Pension Credit application line on 0800 99 1234
  • you or your partner are deferring your State Pension - contact your pension centre on 0845 60 60 265

Find out about call charges.

If you’ve not reached the Pension Credit qualifying age, enter ‘1 January 1950’ as your date of birth on step 2 of the calculator.

The amount of Pension Credit you’ll get will depend on your circumstances when you reach the qualifying age.
