The Department for Work and Pensions has sworn to track down 134,000 people who have been paid less than they are owed in state pension payments. A spokesperson from the DWP said: “The action we are taking now will correct the historical underpayments that have been made by successive governments and anyone impacted will be contacted by us to ensure they receive all that they are owed.” Express.co.uk goes through a full breakdown of who could be owed money, and how you can get what you’re owed back.

Widowed women

Widowed women can receive additional earnings based off their own NI record and the pension of their deceased partner.

If the following applies to you, its likely you are due a back payment:

Your husband received the full basic state pension while you were still married

Your weekly basic state pension was less than the married woman’s standard rate while you were still married

Your husband reached state pension age after March 2008 or he was already over state pension age when you reached it

What should I do if I think I’ve been underpaid?

If you believe you may have been one of the tens of thousands who have received the incorrect amount of state pension, you should contact the Pensions Service.

You can contact them directly on 0800 731 0469.
