Applying for the State Pension may seem like a confusing process – our recently updated factsheet The State Pension has useful information on what the State Pension is, who is eligible for State Pension and how to apply for it.

Big changes to the State Pension were introduced in April 2016. These changes created two different systems. Which system you claim under depends on when you reach State Pension age. If you reached State Pension age or were already claiming State Pension before 6th April 2016, you will continue to claim under the old system.
