New state pension rates

15 February 2019

It's also good news for those entitled to the full new single-tier state pension.

Those receiving this will see an increase from £164.35 to £168.60 - which means an additional £4.25 a week.

That's £221 extra by the end of the 2019/2020 tax year, which raises the total annual income to £8,767.20.
