Pension credit

We estimate around 36,000 eligible households not claiming Pension Credit in Greater Manchester. This would bring in an average £34 per week per household if claimed, or £70m in total.

To check if you or your older family and friends are getting all the entitled benefits, contact your local social housing provider or Independent Age freephone helpline 0800 319 6789 or visit the Independent Age website.
