Some of the rules about benefits depend on your age. In many cases, the rules change when you get to state pension age.
State pension age is the age when people can choose to start getting their State Pension and it used to always be 60 for a woman and 65 for a man but now it depends on your date of birth.

If you are already getting benefits and you are approaching pension age you might need to consult an experienced adviser about how the different benefits work together. If you have a choice between different benefits, an experienced adviser can help you choose which is best for you. Contact:
