Use this service to find out:
- how much State Pension you could get
- when you can get it
- how to increase it, if you can
This page is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).
The State Pension age is regularly reviewed, so the results of this tool may change in the future. You can read about the results of the most recent review.
You cannot use this service if you’re already getting your State Pension or if you’ve delayed (‘deferred’) claiming it.
To use this service, you’ll need to prove your identity using Government Gateway. You’ll be able to register for Government Gateway if you have not used it before.
