In recent times, the UK has seen a boost in pensioners living alone. There are many reasons that this might be the case including divorce and death of a spouse, or even just not finding someone to share their life with. The benefits for pensioners have been increasing in order to help them live more comfortably and independently. Let’s take a look at some of these benefits!
The “Pension Credit” is an additional payment for those who receive less than £155 per week on top of their normal state pension income. This means that they will get an extra £10 every week which can really make a difference when it comes time to buy groceries or other necessities! Another benefit is that there are now schemes available for people.
The UK has been a world leader in pension provision for many years, with the first state pension introduced way back in 1908. Currently, there are two main types of pensions available – one is an occupational scheme and the other is a personal pension. With the introduction of auto-enrolment earlier this year, more people are now taking advantage of these schemes. So, let’s explore what benefits you could receive from them both!
Pension Credit is a government benefit and has changed from the old pension credit. The new Pension Credit UK replaced the old system in April 2016.

You need to be over the state pension age (currently 65) or living in the UK but not getting any other State Pension or Social Security benefits – but even if you are living abroad, it may still be worth enquiring about this scheme.
