Does Brexit impact my State Pension?

As we know in 2021 the current State Pension in (overseen by DWP) is £175.20 per week, dependant upon National Insurance contributions. The UK Pension is now linked to inflation and from April 2021  there will be an inflation increase of 2.5%,  delivering a rise from £175.20 to £179.60 a week.

How do I officially change my address?

You can also update your address across utilitiy and loyalty providers at the same time. SlothMove will process your change of address with your chosen providers, updating your new details.

Will the triple-lock on my state pension stay?

At the moment in the UK we have a triple-lock guarantee afforded to all those who claim State Pension. As many of us know, it means that the State Pension must increase with the highest possible of these three numbers: 2.5%, the rise in cost of goods, or the rise in wages.

Many are wondering whether the government will repel the triple-lock state pension. In light of COVID-19 and its economic impact on the UK there is some speculation that the conservative government may look to reduce or amend this provision.

For example, if the price of earnings increases by 8%, and this was the highest of those three figures, the UK government would have an estimated £3 Billion extra to pay. 

At this point, changes in the State Pension are speculative. They are also set in April each year, so there won’t be any sudden changes in your State Pension benefit. Meanwhile, update HMRC with any changes in your circumstances, such as change of address, to receive important communications.
