There are two different types of Pension Credit. Guarantee Credit is for those who have reached the minimum qualifying age. Savings Credit is for those aged 65 or over.

Occupational or company pensions

State Pensions

The State Pension is a regular payment people can claim when they get to State Pension age. Most people build up some State Pension, but the amount they get varies. It's worth understanding how you build up State Pension and how much income it will give you in later life.
