  1. #1

    Old age pension

    Hello I am 60 my wife is 58 I work full time as does my wife. When we retire will we both be
    entitled to a full pension. 140 each or will it be a married couples pension which I assume will be less. We have both worked all our lives and easily qualify for the full pension.
    Thanks for any advice/help Morris

    Jeffian's advice will get you the most accurate prediction, but until you have those figures, it seems likely that if you have both paid full-rate stamps for the whole (or nearly the whole) of your working life, you are both entitled to a full state pension (basic, flat-rate version); as for any additional state pension, this will depend on your individual company pension status, since you may have been contracted-out, or not!
    Do check with Jeffian's web page link as soon as you can.
