State pension warning as thousands unaware of way to boost amount – could you get more?

The most recent data shows that just under a million, 959,000 people, are receiving extra state pension, the lowest since 1999.

This means that the 959,000 people, or 7.7 percent of all people receiving state pension, are getting a topped up weekly income because they deferred.

This is down from a high of 11 percent in 2004 when 1.25 million pensioners received extra income.

Deferring the state pension means it won’t be received for the time it is deferred but when it is taken, the amount of income derived will be higher, provided it’s been deferred for a certain period of time.
