What you need to know:

This calculator gives an estimate of your basic State Pension.

It doesn’t estimate any Additional State Pension.

You’ll be asked for the number of years you worked and paid National Insurance or got certain benefits. These are the years of your National Insurance contributions that count towards your State Pension.

Count tax years from 6 April to 5 April and don’t count any years twice (eg when you were working and getting benefits). Don’t count the current tax year.

This calculator uses a simplified calculation based on the current law. It can’t take into account every circumstance that might affect you. Don’t make future financial decisions based on its results.
