Until 5 April 2016, the State Pension paid to people reaching state pension age was split into two parts, the basic State Pension and the additional State Pension.

The additional State Pension was originally part of the State Graduated Pension Scheme, which changed to the State Earnings Related Pension Scheme (SERPS) in 1978 and then to the State Second Pension (S2P) in April 2002.

People who reach state pension age after 5 April 2016 will receive a flat rate single tier State Pension.
