State pension: National Insurance numbers will determine payment dates – check yours now

When a person reaches their state pension age they can defer payments if they do not wish to retire.

Deferment will happen automatically if a state pension is not claimed and so long as this is done for a specific amount of time, the payments themselves can be boosted when they’re eventually claimed.

State pensions will increase for every week of deferment, so long as it’s delayed for at least nine weeks.

A state pension will increase by the equivalent of one percent for every nine weeks of deferment.
