Pension age calculator

You can use our pension age calculator to see when you will qualify for:

  • the state pension
  • mean-tested pension age benefits, such as Pension Credit
  • winter fuel payments and bus passes

Once pension ages for men and women have been equalised in 2019 these benefits will be available at the same age. Until this time different entitlements are available at different ages.

For more information see our help page on changes to state pension age. In couples entitlement to mean-tested pension age benefits depends on the age of your partner as well as your age. We therefore need to take both individuals' date of birth.
