Pension Tax Credit
An estimated 850,000 pensioner households in the UK do not claim pension credit, which is a gateway to these extra payments.
Other eligibility details are outlined here.
Two payments totalling £650 were made last year to more than eight million low-income households.
The first instalment of £326 was paid between 14 and 31 July. The second instalment of £324 should have reached those eligible by the end of December.
Payments of £300 were also paid to pensioners during the winter just gone, and a £150 payment was also made last year to those with disabilities.
Some people would have received all of those payments, if they were eligible.
