Money guides

Every year, it's estimated that up to £3.5 billion of state benefits in the UK goes unclaimed by older people. Could you be one of the people missing out?

Our money guides offer more information about a range of benefits and how to go about claiming them, so you can make sure you're not one of those missing out.

You can download the guides, or call Age Cymru Advice on 0300 303 44 98 to have them sent to your home for free. 

Attendance Allowance

If you have a disability or illness that means you might need extra help at home you might be able to get Attendance Allowance.

Carer's Allowance

Carer's Allowance is the main welfare benefit to help carers. Even if you don’t think of yourself as a carer, it's worth checking if Carer’s Allowance could help you.

Help with Council Tax

Council Tax is a compulsory, property-based tax paid to local authorities. You may be eligible for help with your Council Tax bill via your local authority's Council Tax Reduction Scheme. Alternatively, in some circumstances you might be eligible for a discount or exemption.

Pension Credit

Pension Credit can give you some extra money in retirement. If you’re struggling to make ends meet, claiming Pension Credit could help.

State Pension

The State Pension is a regular payment made to you by the Government once you reach State Pension age.
