Forecasting your pension
It's important to keep track of how much State Pension you will receive from the Government and how much pension you will receive from workplace/private pension schemes you or your employer have paid into when you reach State Pension age.
Getting a State Pension forecast
You can get a forecast of what you may receive from the Government as a State Pension using the Check Your State Pension online service.
This forecast is based on an estimate of what your National Insurance record could be when you reach State Pension age. The online service will also provide information about how you can increase your State Pension, if you can.
Workplace and Personal Pensions
Detailed information on workplace and personal/private pensions can be found on the GOV.UK website.
