Reply To: Pension Credit Handbook



I agree there is a mistake in the Handbook.

Yes it should say £30 over the “starting point” – and yes, this would lead to an £18 initial figure.

However, the reduction using the 40% taper would be £2.14 leaving a savings credit of £15.86.

I have developed a QuickCalc tool to work ’em out. Its very easy to use and faithful to the guidance issued so far. Send me an email if you want it.
