You’ll be able to get the new State Pension if you are eligible (You’ll usually need 10 qualifying years to get any new State Pension) and are:
- a man born on or after 6 April 1951
- a woman born on or after 6 April 1953
If you reach State Pension age before 6 April 2016, you’ll get the State Pension under the current scheme instead.
The full single-tier State Pension will be given to people with at least 35 years National Insurance (NI) contributions or credits.
