State Pension Credit

Non-legal words

State Pension Credit (SPC) is a means-tested benefit for people who have reached a qualifying age. Unlike the equivalent working age benefits (Income Support, Jobseekers Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance and Universal Credit), SPC has no conditions relating to a person’s job seeking activity: there is no requirement to seek work or attend interviews.
