About Pensions

The State Pension

The State Pension is a regular income paid by the UK Government to people who have reached State Pension age. In this section we explain various aspects of the State Pension and how NI contributions work - and we introduce the changes that are happening. Below are the links that you might find useful when thinking about your State Pension. 

The State Pension is intended to ensure that everyone has a basic amount of money to support them in their old age. State Pensions are funded from National Insurance (NI) contributions. You may receive a State Pension in your own right ( i.e. regardless of whether you’re married or not) and what you'll receive doesn’t depend on how much you have earned, but on your own NI record. If you entered the National Insurance system on or after 6 April 2016, you currently need to have 35 years’ worth of NI contributions or credits to get the full State Pension.
