This is a topic that is often discussed with many changes being made – and knowing how much we will have to live with in retirement is essential.

You can claim the basic state pension if you are a man born before April 6, 1951 or a woman born before April 6, 1953.

To get the basic state pension, you must have paid or been credited with national insurance contributions.

The basic state full board is £ 137.60 per week.

But how do you check what you might be owed and when?

The government has put in place an online tool that allows you to check how much state pension you might be getting, when you can get it, and how to increase it, if you can.

To get a full state pension, you must have contributed at least 35 years to national insurance (for people reaching retirement age after April 2016).

There are many ways to increase your fundraiser, such as applying for family allowance or a specified adult child care credit.

You can find out how much you are receiving from your state pension here using the online checker.
