   Pensions Explained: Basic State Pension 2013/2014.

Basic state pension.

Although an entitlement for most people, the amount received from the basic state pension will depend on the amount of national insurance contributions paid.

Full state pension allowance.

For the year 2013/2014, the full pension allowance for a single person who has made sufficient contributions is £110.15 per week.

A married individual's state pension allowance is currently £66.00 per week if using their partner's national insurance contribution record. The married couple’s pension allowance will be £176.75 per week in total (£110.15 plus £66.60).

If both  partners have worked throughout their lives and have made sufficient national insurance payments individually, the separate single pension entitlements will apply. This means the total combined state pension allowance for a married couple or civil partnership rises from £176.75 to £220.30 per week.
