Claims: What is a mixed age couple?

A 'mixed age' couple is where one member of the couple is working age and their partner is Pension Credit age.

A couple is where: 
  • two people who are married to, or civil partners of, each other and are members of the same household
  • two people who are not married to, or civil partners of, each other but are living together as a married couple / in a civil partnership.

Someone is Pension Credit age if they have reached the age at which they are allowed to claim the State Pension. State Pension age is increasing. If someone is 65 then they will be State Pension Age. If they are not 65 yet, then the date on which they turn State Pension age will depend on their date of birth. 

You can find out whether someone is State Pension age ie Pension Credit age - or when they will turn State Pension age ie Pension Credit age - by using the calculator on the gov.uk website - click here.
