State pension: When you were born may dictate what you could get – basic versus new

1 min read


The Government website adds: “If you reached state pension age before April 6, 2016, you’ll get the state pension under the old rules instead.”

The introduction of the new state pension was to create a clearer system for the future, according to the Government.

The DWP has explained the full yearly basic state pension is now over £2,300 higher than it was in 2010.

It states many of those who are in receipt of the basic state pension will also be receiving additional income from either an occupational/private pension, or the additional state pension.
