On 6 April 2016, the current State Pension scheme will be replaced by a clearer one. This means people will be able to know from a much younger age how much State Pension they’re likely to get. It will enable them to plan better for their retirement. Any eligible person who reaches State Pension age on or after 6 April 2016 will receive the new State Pension.
This toolkit contains information to help people understand the State Pension.
