Applying for a state pension statement online

You can enrol for the state pension statement service if you fit the following criteria:

  • you live in the UK
  • you are 16 years old or older
  • you are not within 4 months of age 60 if you are a woman, or 4 months of age 65 if you are a man.

The service can be launched from this page.

A Government Gateway User ID and password can be used for this service. If you already have a Government Gateway account then you will be able to use this for the online state pension statement service.

In the event that the enquirer does not have a Government Gateway account, one will be created upon an online forecast request, however receipt of an activation code in the post will initially be required..

To maximise security, a ‘User ID’ will be sent in the post, accompanying an activation code.

Activation of the service is required within 28 days of receiving the code.

Once you have used the service and received your statement, you cannot save a copy of it, but you may print it out for future reference.

I found Law on the Web to be very informative when looking for a solicitor to do our family will. It helped me find key information fast and when getting in contact with a solicitor I already had some knowledge on the subject and could focus in on what we needed. Thanks for all your hard work.
