State Pension Question

January 28, 2019
Pension File

During our Roadshow briefings we often get asked pension questions which are unrelated to the Armed Forces pension.

Here’s an example…

Q.  If I am receiving my State Pension and my spouse/partner is still in employment, I have heard that my state pension will be reduced. Is this true?

A. The state pension is based on your own individual National Insurance Contributions. The amount of state pension you receive will not be affected by your spouse/partners employment income. for more details see https://www.ageuk.org.uk/globalassets/age-uk/documents/factsheets/fs19_state_pension_fcs.pdf
