Does having a very small private pension (a couple of years worth) from years ago affect the state pension?

Last updated: 17 Jun 2021

Someone who has been in a private or occupational pension scheme that was contracted out of the State Second Pension may find that they do not qualify for the full level of the single tier state pension.

But they will get no less than under current system and could get more if making full NI contributions after April 2016.
