This thread prompted me to check my pension which I started receiving nearly 2 years ago. At the time I expected not to get the full whack since my NI records showed I hadn't got 35 full years. So the £153.63 I get every week seems reasonable. Well it would but on checking my NI records just now I find I have 39 full years. I am now puzzled. I may have to contact someone.
There's no vibrations, but wait.

Under the old rules, from April 2010, you only needed 30 qualifying years to get the full amount of the old basic old age pension.  It was only from the revamp in 2016, when they combined the basic old age and the additional earnings related pension to become the new State pension, that it became 35 qualifying years.
