Why check?

Every year in Northern Ireland, almost £200m of benefits that older people are entitled to go unclaimed - including Pension Credit, Housing Benefit and Lone Pensioner Credit. Some benefits, like the Winter Fuel Payment, are entirely dependent on age - and not at all related to income.

So, even if you think you're getting everything you are entitled to - it doesn't hurt to check.

How to claim

The benefits calculator has shown that you are missing out on money - so what next? Download our guide, More money in your pocket (PDF 570KB), to find out how to claim pension age benefits.

Think you are owed more?

If you think a decision made about your benefits is wrong, you can ask the office that made the decision to explain or reconsider it.
