Can you provide any further background information?

Expert:  MatthewM1117 replied 6 days ago.

Without further information, I will have to apply a general answer, you can start your claim 4 months before you reach State Pension age.

In practice most people apply by the phoning the Pension Credit claim line on 0800 99 1234 and they can fill in the application for you over the phone

Pension Credit comes in 2 parts, guarantee credit and savings credit.

Guarantee credit tops up your weekly income and savings credit is extra money if you've got some savings or your income is higher than the basic State Pension.
