How much is your State Pension worth?
Posted on 7th August 2023
The amount of your state pension is largely determined by how many years of National Insurance Contributions (NIC) you have completed during your working life.
You normally need a minimum of 10 full years of NIC to receive a state pension and a total of 35 full years of NIC to receive the maximum state pension.
If you do not have a full NIC record of 35 years, you can make voluntary NIC payments of £17.45 per week to HMRC to fill any NIC gaps that you may have between 2017 - 2023.
You can review your NIC record via your personal tax account. More information can be found here:
