You need to have paid 35 years of contributions to get the full UK pension of £179.60 a week. You have no entitlement until you have paid in for 10 years. This means at the date of independence most people under 30 would have no entitlement to a UK pension and under-40s who’d paid in for 20 years would have ten years’ entitlement, around £50 per week. The Scottish Government has committed to honouring current UK entitlements, so my advice to their target younger voters is… be careful what you wish for, whichever government will actually be paying for it.
