Benefits in later life

If you’re around or above retirement age, there are a number of benefits you might be able to claim.

On top of your State Pension, which is based on your National Insurance contributions, you might be entitled to extra money to help with your heating in winter, free transport passes and other benefits. 

This section gives you a list of benefits you can potentially claim and how to find out if you’re eligible, so you don’t miss out on any support.
