Other ways to apply

If you’ll reach your State Pension age in more than 30 days, you can get a pension forecast by filling in the BR19 application form and sending it in the post.

It’s taking longer than usual to get pension forecasts by post because of coronavirus (COVID-19). Use the online service to get your forecast more quickly.

If you’re already getting your State Pension or have delayed claiming it

To get information about your State Pension, contact the Pension Service if you’re in the UK or the International Pension Centre if you live abroad.
