Pension credit and income
4 replies 181 views
Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right place, please move if necessary.
I am semi retired, self employed, live on my own and don't get full pension as not enough stamps. At the moment, I work and claim working tax credits but my work has reduced and when the next tax year starts I will be struggling to do 16 hours a week to get my WTC. I am being encouraged to stop working and claim Pension credit instead.
I am led to believe that as I don't get full pension, I would be entitled to my council tax paid too.
I am on standard rate PIP.
I would really like to do some work if possible as I enjoy what I do but am being led to believe that I would not be able to if I claim pension credit, is that true please?
Thanks in advance.
