Get your State Pension

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 have not received an invitation letter and you are within 4 months of reaching your State Pension age, you can still claim online.

This service is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).

There’s a different process if you live in Northern Ireland.
