Pension Credit - percentage of those eligible actually make a claim

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

I would like to understand the percentage of people who are eligible for Pension Credit have actually made a claim and are in receipt of some level of Pension Credit.

Ideally I would like to understand this at a Local Authority level (Arun and Chichester District Councils) or if you cannot give me this detail then please give me the information at a National level.

Yours faithfully,

Ken Porter
