State Pension

Minimum how many years of NI contributions do you need for a partial state pension?

To be eligible for a partial State Pension in the UK, you need to have made at least 10 years of qualifying National Insurance (NI) contributions or received NI credits.

If you have made between 10 and 35 years of NI contributions, you may be entitled to a partial State Pension. The amount of your partial State Pension will depend on the number of qualifying years you have built up.

It's worth noting that even if you have not made enough NI contributions to qualify for a State Pension, you may still be able to claim other benefits, such as Pension Credit or the new State Pension top-up scheme, which can help to boost your income in retirement. It's a good idea to check your State Pension forecast on the UK government's website to see how much you might be entitled to based on your specific circumstances.
