State pension claimants can get a number of benefits in retirement – full list of support

BUSINESS

State pension income can be claimed by those who have at least 10 years of National Insurance contributions under their belt. To receive the full amount of £179.60 per week, at least 35 years will be needed.

The Government endorses a number of options as the following details:

  • entitledto – for information on income-related benefits, tax credits, contribution-based benefits, council tax reduction, carer’s allowance, Universal Credit and how your benefits will be affected if you start work
  • Turn2us – for information on income-related benefits, tax credits, council tax reduction, carer’s allowance, Universal Credit and how your benefits will be affected if you start work or change your working hours
  • Policy in Practice – for information on income-related benefits, tax credits, contribution-based benefits, council tax reduction, carer’s allowance, Universal Credit, how these are calculated and how your benefits will be affected if you start work or change your working hours

The quickest way to claim a state pension is through the Government’s website.

They can also be claimed over the phone or through the post.

Initial payments should come through within five weeks of reaching a state pension age, so long as it was claimed.

Beyond this, payments will usually arrive once every four weeks.
