Over 50 per cent of claims made on line through Get Your State Pension are processed automatically. All other State Pension claims received to-date, where a payment is due in October, will be processed by the end of October; with the exception of those claims where we need additional information, or there is a future entitlement date.

We do not expect delays to State Pension claims in the future provided all relevant information has been received.
