New state pension

The Government has introduced a new single tier State Pension from 6 April 2016, so anyone reaching their state pension age after 5 April 2016 will receive the new state pension. This replaced the previous basic and additional State Pension.

The new State Pension is calculated differently and not everyone gets the same amount. How much you get depends on your National Insurance (NI) record.

You'll find more information on how to calculate your new state pension by visiting or by reading the Department for Works & Pension's 'New State Pension' Q&A factsheet here.
