What Is the State Pension for a Married Couple?

Answer

The state pension for a married couple in the UK is £163.35 per week and £61.20 per week for an individual who is using their partner's national insurance contribution record. If the couple has worked all through their lives and have made enough national insurance payments separately, the separate single pension claim will apply.

The basic state retirement pension for a single person is £95.25 a week and £152.30 for a couple, in 2009/10. Whether you get this can depend on how many national insurance contribution years you have completed. The basic pension is lower than the income support threshold, so if they have no other income, state pensioners can top up with income support. This comes in the form of a means-tested Pension Credit which brings the weekly amount up to £130 for a single person and £198.45 for a couple.
