A state pension is included as an income, as are any occupational pensions that he may get.

i know my dad gets pension credits, not sure if its the same as tax credits... might be worth phoning them and finding out

Phoned the tax credit people and the bad news is it will go down by over half! Which meand husband gets extra in his bank and I dip out! He said he would "try" and give me some of it back but I would still be £80 short! He will have to buy the school shoes in future!
