In Chapter 1 of Part 8, regulation 24 is an interpretation provision.

Regulation 25 contains general provisions governing the circumstances in which credits are awarded.

In Chapter 2 of Part 8, regulations 26 to 28 provide for certain earnings or contributions credited in respect of a period before 6 April 2016 to be included in the calculation of the person’s starting amount under Schedule 1 to the 2015 Act.

In Chapter 3 of Part 8, regulations 29 to 37 set out the particular circumstances in which a person is eligible to be awarded a credit. These include where a person is—

  • entitled to a working age benefit or a working tax credit;

  • a man who was born before 6 October 1953;

  • the spouse or civil partner of a member of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces;

  • a carer for a child under the age of 12 (including a foster parent); or

  • caring for a person who is either in receipt of a relevant disability benefit or who is certified by a health or social care professional as needing the level of care provided.

Regulation 38 enables certain carers to be awarded a credit for an additional period of 12 weeks.
