Expats working abroad may not be eligible for state pension from the start of next year | Personal Finance | Finance

To be eligible for any state pension at all one needs 10 qualifying years on their National Insurance record. 

Under the new state pension, which is applicable for men born on or after 6 April 1951 and women born on or after 6 April 1953, one will need 35 qualifying years. 

Those within the right age range for the new state pension but have between 10 and 35 qualifying years will only receive a portion of the new state pension. 

To claim the basic state pension, those that reached state pension age before 6 April 2016 will need a total of 30 qualifying years.
