National Insurance – check your state pension

NATIONAL INSURANCE PAYMENTS are part of all taxpayers’ lives. As they’re currently under governmental review in some areas, let’s look at some of the overall information from the HMRC website.

Use this service to find out:

  • how much State Pension you could get (this amount is also known as your State Pension forecast)
  • when you can get it
  • how to increase it, if you can

The State Pension age is under review and may change in the future.

You can’t use this service if you’re already getting your State Pension or if you’ve delayed (‘deferred’) claiming it.

Q&Q comment: THIS IS AN INTERACTIVE REQUEST SO FIRST CHECK CAREFULLY YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED.

Other ways to apply

If you’ll reach your State Pension age in more than 30 days, call the Future Pension Centre and ask for a statement.

You can also fill in the BR19 application form and send it in the post.

You’ll get your statement within 10 working days.

If you’re already getting your State Pension or have delayed claiming it

To get information about your State Pension, contact the Pension Service if you’re in the UK or the International Pension Centre if you live abroad.

If you’ve worked and paid National Insurance in the Isle of Man

Contact the Future Pension Centre to get information about your State Pension.
