Campaign overview

The State Pension forms the foundation of a pension. Most people see the benefits of saving into a Workplace Pension, to help build up their pension pot and help provide for the lifestyle they may want in later life.

The State Pension ‘Get to know your Pension’ campaign encourages people to get to know their State Pension by finding out how much they could get and when they could get it.

The yourpension.gov.uk website provides link to the online Check your State Pension service and calculators. It also provides tailored information for people of different ages – picking out the most useful advice, guidance and support.

We have drafted an article that you could use to give more information about the new State Pension.
