star this property answer text <p>The Government published an impact assessment ‘<em>New State pension: impact on an individual's pension entitlement longer term effects’</em> in January 2016. This included impacts on derived entitlement to the State Pension. The estimates show around 2 per cent of men and 6 per cent of women reaching State Pension age between 2016-2020 were expected to receive less State Pension due to the withdrawal of derived entitlement. The proportion affected falls over the first two decades of the new State Pension. Further information on the impact of new State Pension reform on derived entitlement is available here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/491845/impact-of-new-state-pension-longer-term-reserach.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/491845/impact-of-new-state-pension-longer-term-reserach.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Information on the overall costs of the new State Pension (formerly the Single Tier) is available here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/311316/pensions-act-ia-annex-a-single-tier-state-pension.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/311316/pensions-act-ia-annex-a-single-tier-state-pension.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>The cost estimates of the new State Pension do not provide a specific breakdown of savings from the inheritance of spouses’ State Pension.</p><p> </p><p>The new State Pension was introduced for people reaching State Pension age from 6 April 2016 onwards to provide a clearer, simpler and sustainable system for the future and is based on an individual’s own National Insurance record.

There is transitional protection of the old derived basic State Pension for women whose own contribution history was affected by taking the option to pay reduced-rate National Insurance contributions.
