State pension is rising

The state pension is going up this year, in line with the government's triple-lock pledge on pensions.
It will be rising to £119.30 (or an extra £3.35) per week for existing pensioners.

The triple-lock pledge guarantees a state pension rise each April to match the highest of inflation, earnings, or 2.5%. Some pensioners who have built up an additional state pension may get more.

The new flat rate state pension has been confirmed at £155.65 a week. However, people who contracted out will get less than this.
