Understanding the new State Pension

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has unveiled a new communications campaign to raise awareness of the new State Pension that will be launched next year.

The new State Pension is available for those who reach State Pension Age on or after 6 April 2016 – and at present not many in the UK population are particularly familiar with the new proposals.

Should employers (or their employees) have more specific questions, please contact your usual Jelf Employee Benefits Consultant in the first instance.
