This is an extra payment made in addition to your State Retirement Pension.
If you are eligible and you apply before the 19th December, then you could also receive an additional £324 cost of living payment.
Enter your details in to the Fife Benefit Checker and if you are eligible for Pension Credit you will receive an estimate of how much extra that payment could be per week. It will also provide information about any other entitlements you could be due.
Even if you are already receiving some benefits or have some savings it’s worth checking.
If you have trouble using the online checker you can make an appointment or ask for a call back. We have advisors who are happy to help.
