But beyond harbouring a general suspicion that "It won't be enough to live on", many people tend to wait until they’re very close to retirement before they get to grips with the details behind the state pension.

This issue of Thinking Ahead takes a long hard look at the state pension, with articles on how things stand now and what will change when the new State Pension comes into effect in April 2016. We’ll show you how to work out roughly how much you’ll be due, when will be paid and how the new system will work going forward. Take a look now!
