Use this service to get your State Pension online.

You’ll need:

  • the date of your most recent marriage, civil partnership or divorce
  • the dates of any time spent living or working abroad
  • your personal or joint bank or building society details

If you’ve received a letter about getting your State Pension, you can use the invitation code from it.

If you haven’t received an invitation letter 2 months before your State Pension age, you can still claim online.

This service is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).

Before you start

If you live in Northern Ireland, you’ll need to get your State Pension with NI Direct.

There’s a different way to claim if you live overseas.

If you don’t want to claim yet, you can delay your State Pension.

You can also claim by phone or by post.
