    The earliest you can get the basic State Pension is when you reach State Pension age. Your basic State Pension depends on the number of years you’ve paid National Insurance or got National Insurance credits, eg while unemployed or claiming certain benefits. To qualify for a basic State Pension at least one of the following must apply to you: you were working and paying National Insurance you were getting certain benefits, eg for unemployment, sickness you were a parent or carer and claiming certain benefits or credits you have a spouse or civil partner whose National Insurance contributions cover you you were paying voluntary National Insurance contributions To get the full basic State Pension you need 30 years worth of contributions or credits. These are your ‘qualifying years’. If you have fewer than 30 years your State Pension will be less than £107.45 per week.
