Hi

Does the earnings threshold for eligibility for Pension Credit change each year, is the any change for the next tax year confirmed yet?

Many Thanks

Do you mean the earnings disregards i.e. £5 for a single person, £10 if you have a partner etc?

If so, these have been the same since the 2002 regulations were laid, it’s absurd.

So no, we don’t expect any changes.

Hi

Sorry, I did not explain myself well, I meant the income threshold i.e.

your weekly income to £201.05 if you’re single
your joint weekly income to £306.85 if you have a partner

Thanks
