Pension Credit

Pension Credit is a means tested, non-taxable benefit.  It is made up of two components:  Guarantee Credit and Savings Credit. Even if you have a pension from a previous employer or savings you may still qualify. You can get Pension Credit if you have reached the qualifying age, which is the same age as the women's state pension age.
