Boost your income
We should all be able to enjoy our retirement. But as we get older, it can sometimes get harder to make ends meet.
We’ve got some straightforward advice to help you make your money go further.
Get a benefits check
Don't assume you're not entitled to any benefits. Each year up to £3.5bn of benefits go unclaimed by older people. So, even if you think you're getting everything you are entitled to - it doesn't hurt to check. Benefits could help you to pay for care, bereavement, bills or to maintain your independence.
Use the online benefits calculator to find out much money could you claim.
Clear your debts
It's never too late to regain control and find your way back to a debt-free life. Read our guide to debt to find out how to manage, consolidate and pay back anything you owe.
There are also lots of organisations offering free debt management advice.
Trace lost money
You may have money stored away in lost bank accounts, pensions or premium bonds if you've changed your name or address several times.
Cut your household costs
Reducing your energy and water bills doesn't mean making big changes, and could save you hundreds of pounds every year.
