Info: State Pension Changes

The Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) has published a State Pension Toolkit, with guidance and promotional material to help organisations and employers communicate the changes to the State Pension being introduced in April 2016.

From April 2016 the current State Pension will be replaced by the new simpler system. The new State Pension is designed to give people greater clarity about what they will get from the State in retirement and will affect everyone who reaches State Pension age on or after 6 April 2016.

Topics covered in the toolkit include: the current State Pension, the new State Pension and how it will be calculated, State Pension Top Up, deferring your State Pension, State Pension for the self-employed, contracting-out, and National Insurance.

The toolkit will be regularly updated with new products.
