When you reach State Pension age you no longer have to pay National Insurance.
You only pay Income Tax if your taxable income - including your private pension and State Pension - is more than your tax-free allowances (the amount of income you’re allowed before you pay tax).
You must contact HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) if you think you should be paying tax.
