State Pension Payments

STATE PENSION payments are something many people may rely on during their later years. How much is the state pension amount in 2019?

The type of state pension a person gets will depend on when they were born. Men with a date of birth before April 6 1951, and women born before April 6 1953, can claim the basic state pension. Those born after this date will follow the new rules – which means their state pension will be different in a number of ways. This includes the maximum amount that is available.

The current full basic state pension is £129.20 per week.

Some people may be able to increase their state pension, such as by deferring their state pension payments.

The maximum amount available on the new state pension is £168.60 per week.

However, the actual amount that may be paid to a person will depend on their National Insurance record.
