Apply for Pension Credit

If you apply online, we will pay you into the account you get your State Pension paid into. You will be able to change this once you have started receiving your Pension Credit payments.

We will use information:

  • that we already have about your State Pension and any benefits you receive
  • that we get from HMRC about your income and earnings

To find out more about how we use information and your information rights, read our Personal Information Charter.

You will need to complete your application all in one go. You will not be able to save it and come back later.

You can take as long as you need to complete the application. To keep your information secure, we will delete your answers if you do not enter information on any page for more than 30 minutes. You will be given a chance to extend the time if this happens. If you do not extend the time, you will have to start again.
