When will State Pension be paid over Easter?

The day your State Pension is paid depends on your National Insurance (NI) number.

The last two digits on your NI number is the day your State Pension gets paid.

If your digits are between 00 to 19, you will get paid on a Monday, 20 to 39 on a Tuesday, 40 to 59 on a Wednesday, 60 to 79 on a Thursday and 80 to 99 on a Friday.

The basic State Pension is usually paid every four weeks unless you’re paid ‘in arrears’, which means you’re paid for the last four weeks, not for the coming four weeks.

However, as with other benefits, you may get paid slightly earlier if your payment date falls on a weekend or bank holiday.

The most you can currently get is £129.20 per week.
