Do you have a family member turning pension age soon? Did you know they could be entitled to their state pension and pension credit? 

An astonishing £1.8 billion worth of pension credit goes unclaimed each year meaning it’s worth a chat to make sure your family member doesn’t miss out!

Your parents, grandparents or other family members may be missing out so why not reach out a helping hand and offer help to apply online or by phone! 

To find out more, visit the pension service website at www.gov.uk/contact-pension-service for more information or to apply. You can also call: 0800 731 7898 to request a paper application and begin the claim.  

Once you know what your State Retirement Pension will be, you can get a free benefit check from our team of dedicated advisers to make sure you are not missing out on any other help available. 

So, go on - reach out for a helping hand by a member of our Welfare Benefit and Money Advice Team.

Contact your Welfare Benefit and Money Advice Team here at Halton Housing by calling 0151 510 5024 or by email to welfare@haltonhousing.co.uk
