What state pension am I entitled to? How to check your forecast

Regular payments are given to pensioners after they reach a certain age, even if they continue to keep working. 

The State Pension is usually paid every four weeks, unless the person is paid in arrears – meaning someone is paid for the last four weeks instead of the coming four weeks. 

At the most, current pensioners can expect to receive £134.25 per week.

This is an increase under the triple lock mechanism, which sees the State Pension rise each year by whichever is the highest: average earnings, the rate of inflation or 2.5 percent.
