The full new State Pension is £168.60 per week.The actual amount you get depends on your National Insurance record.The only reasons the amount can be higher are if:

  • you have over a certain amount of Additional State Pension
  • you defer (delay) taking your State Pension

You will not get your new State Pension automatically – you have to claim it. You should get a letter no later than 2 months before you reach State Pension age, telling you what to do.
