State Pension

If you're eligible, you'll receive your State Pension when you reach State Pension Age (SPA). Your SPA may be different from your Normal Retirement Age.

You can claim the basic State Pension if you’re a man born before 6 April 1951 or a woman born before 6 April 1953. To get the basic State Pension, you must have paid National Insurance (NI) contributions. Visit the Government website to find out more about the basic State Pension.

If you were born after these dates, you will receive the new State Pension instead. The new State Pension will provide you with an income once you reach your SPA. For 2022/23, the new State Pension is £9,672.80 a year, although this may vary depending on your NI record. Your SPA depends on your date of birth. Visit the Government website to find out your SPA and more about the new State Pension.
