Pensions provide a regular income in later life once you reach qualifying age. If you are on a low income, you may be eligible for Pension Credit. If you have a private pension, you may have to decide how you want to receive your money. 

The State Pension is a regular payment from the government when you reach qualifying age.

You may be eligible for extra payments if you are on a low income.

How much you get depends on what you paid in and what you decide to do with your money.
