State Pension

If you want to work out what your annual state pension is and you’ve misplaced the notification sent by the Pensions Agency at the beginning of the tax year, then here are some helpful tips.

The state pension is paid 4 weekly so in total there will be 13 payments relevant to each tax year.

The first and last payments will be a combination of old and new weekly amounts so will be slightly different to the standard amount.

So if you multiply any of the payments received in May to February in the tax year by 13, that will give you the correct figure for your state pension for the year.
