The State Pension is a regular payment from the government which most people can claim when they reach State Pension age.
The point at which you reach State Pension age depends on your year of birth. You can calculate your State Pension age at the Gov.uk website .
How much will I receive?
To find out an estimate of how much you are likely to receive you can use the calculator on the GOV.UK website.
What happens if you want to carry on working after State Pension age?
You can choose to keep on working, whether paid or on a voluntary basis, while claiming your State Pension. Any money you earn will not affect your State Pension, but it may affect your entitlement to other benefits. You will no longer have to pay National Insurance. For more information click here.
