What you'll get

There is no fixed amount for the Additional State Pension.

How much you get depends on:

  • how many years you paid National Insurance for
  • your earnings
  • whether you’ve contracted out of the scheme
  • whether you topped up your basic State Pension (this was only possible between 12 October 2015 and 5 April 2017)

Get a State Pension statement to find out how much you could get.

How you’re paid

The Additional State Pension is paid with your basic State Pension into your bank account.
