Can I claim Pension Credit?
If you are over 66 and are a foster carer, you may be able to claim Pension Credit. All of the money you get as fostering allowance should be ignored when working out how much Pension Credit you can get.
You won’t be able to get any extra money in your Pension Credit for the child you are fostering.
