The costs of the Pension Credit will depend on decisions about the detailed design following the consultation exercise--such as the nature of the interactions with other benefits such as Housing Benefit and the detail of the legislation when it has completed its passage through Parliament. The Government will bring forward estimates of the Pension Credit once they have considered responses to the consultation exercise.
