Good afternoon, thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. The short answer is yes, you can work part time whilst on pension credits.

However you should be aware that if you decide to work part-time in retirement, some of your benefit entitlements may be affected. Primarily, you may no longer be entitled to Pension Credit if your weekly income rises to more than £155.60, hpwever if you are working just a few hours a week this is unlikely to apply.
