1. State Pension

When you can get State Pension

The earliest you can get your State Pension is when you reach your State Pension age. If you retire before you reach this age, you’ll have to wait till then to claim your State Pension.

How much State Pension you get

Your State Pension depends on the number of years you’ve paid National Insurance or got National Insurance credits while claiming certain benefits.

You need 30 years to get a full State Pension of £113.10. If you have fewer years when you retire you’ll get less State Pension.
