How Many Years do I need to Contribute for a UK State Pension?

UK State Pensions have changed, if you are born up to April 1953 you may qualify for the Basic state pension with a minimum of 10 years National Insurance (NI) contributions and a maximum of 30 years.

Your date of birth and sex determines the exact retirement date and entitlement

The last basic State pensions were paid in 2016, unless deferred.

The New State pension is for men born after 6/4/1951 or women born after 6/4/1953. Again a minimum 10 year National Insurance contribution is required but a longer 35 year contribution history.

The pension is a flat rate per week of: £164.35 

In Year:  2018/19
