Pension Credit Awareness Week

Published on 01 November 2023 10:33 AM

Are you missing out on your entitlement?

Thousands of pensioner households are entitled to, but not receiving, Pension Credit.


"Pension Credit Awareness Week 6th - 10th November"

Did you know millions of pension credit claims go unclaimed and with the winter upon us, could you be missing out?


The UK has nearly 2.1 million older people living in poverty,  benefits that can help them often go unclaimed.


Birmingham City Council is supporting Age UK Birmingham as we step up to support residents of Birmingham during the Cost-of-Living Week, come along and speak to our advisors about your benefits or any concerns you have. 

As the cost of living continues to rise, it is important you receive your full entitlement.

We are here to help with:
  • Welfare benefits
  • Pension Advice
  • Consumer issues
  • Housing options
  • Residential care
  • Health care at home
  • Accessing local services
  • Completing forms - Blue Badge and Benefits
  • Make telephone calls and write letters
