You can get a State Pension:

  • forecast based on an estimate of what your National Insurance record will be when you reach State Pension age
  • statement based on your National Insurance record so far

Get a forecast online

If you’re under State Pension age you can get a pension forecast online.

You’ll also get information about how to increase your State Pension, if you can.

Get a statement by phone or post

How you get a statement depends on when you reach State Pension age.

If you’re over State Pension age or reach it in less than 30 days

Call the Pension Service and ask for a statement. You’ll be sent a statement (‘entitlement notice’) that says how much pension you’ll get if you claim now.
