What is a State Pension statement?
A State Pension statement will give you an estimate of how much State Pension you may get, and the earliest date you can claim.

The amount you get when you claim your State Pension may be different from the amount on your statement. You may want to speak to your Tax Advisor before making decisions based on your State Pension statement.
