Pension Credit - A Big Change?

What is Pension Credit?
Pension Credit is a new entitlement for people aged 60 or over that is being introduced from October 2003. This could mean extra money for you every week.  It guarantees everyone aged 60 and over an income of at least:
102.10 a week if you are single; or
155.80 a week if you have a partner.
For the first time, people aged 65 and over will be rewarded for some of their savings and income they have for their retirement. In the past, those who had managed to save a little were no better off than those who had not saved at all.

Pension Credit will change this by giving new money to those who have saved up to:
14.79 if you are single; or
19.20 a week if you have a partner.
The person who applies for Pension Credit must be at least 60; it does not matter if their partner is under 60. We use 'partner' to mean your husband or wife, or a person you live with as if you are married to them.
