The highest amount of extra unclaimed income was £79.76 per week for an octogenarian from Hertfordshire, who was receiving no benefits.

Advisers found he was eligible for £51.86 per week in Pension Credit, and £27.90 a week in council tax reduction.

This added up to a huge £4,147 per year in extra income, making a real difference.

People can start a claim for Pension Credit up to four months before reaching state pension age.
