Benefits and Entitlements

Changes to benefits due to the coronavirus pandemic

There have been some changes to claiming certain benefits due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Each year up to £2.2bn of Pension Credit and Housing Benefit goes unclaimed by older people. Let us help make it easier.

For details about how and when your benefits are paid, including over the Christmas period, see the Government website.
