Qualifying for a state pension

Helping you from the beginning

In 2018, the state pension age is between 64 and 65 for women and 65 for men. The changes mean that retirement age for women will be equalised with that for men at 65 in November 2018.

When will I reach state pension age?

To find out please enter your gender and date of birth on the GOV.uk website.

There is no longer an earnings component to the state pension rights accrued by contributors, instead they will acquire rights towards the single state pension which is paid at a flat rate of £164.35.

The number of year’s contributions that entitle you to a full pension is 35, but note that there is no state pension if there are fewer than 10 years’ contributions.
