Check your State Pension forecast

05 July 2021

Research carried out by Just Group plc has shown that nearly four in ten people failed to check their State Pension forecast prior to retirement.

14% of those who did check found that the forecast amount was not as much as they had been expecting, and half of them confirmed that this was approximately £500 less per year than they thought it would be.

It is easy to check your State Pension forecast, and it can be done online here.

The service can be used to establish:

  • How much State Pension a person could get
  • When they will be able to get the State Pension
  • How they can increase it, where applicable

Individuals who are already receiving their State Pension, or who have deferred claiming it will not be able to use the service.
