    Pension credit plus attendance allowance 17th Jun 17 at 4:14 PM
    Hi, I was told I would get extra pension credit because I was awarded attendance allowance. This was on 1st June, but haven't heard anything. Does anyone know how much this is?

    I think you are talking about the severe disability premium which is added to the PC.

    The criteria and the amount can be found here:

    Have you told Pension Credit that you have started to receive AA? A fortnight isn't long for the payment to get started. \it should be backdated to the decision date of your AA.

    Just give them a call and see what is happening.

    It is not an automatic award, there should be a notification sitting for action, just give them a call, and a form PC10 should then get sent out or you may be offered a phone call back to do it over the phone
