Your State Pension
The current State Pension is £175.18 a week for the 2020/21 tax year if you have at least 35 years of full National Insurance contributions. However, if you have been ‘contracted out’ of the State Pension at any time, the amount of State Pension you receive may be reduced. You can get an estimate of your State Pension from www.gov.uk/check-state-pension.
