New regulation: Pension credit - additional amount for dependent children

Posted by Debbie Watson June 28, 2018

New regulations to allow that support should continue to be available for low income pensioners who have responsibility for a dependent child or QYP after Child Tax Credit has been abolished.

The accompanying memorandum states that this instrument introduces that support by providing for an additional amount to be added into the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit for those who have responsibility for a child or QYP, as determined in accordance with a new schedule which is to be inserted into the State Pension Credit Regulations 2023.
