Flat-rate state pension 'expected to start in 2017'

A new flat-rate state pension likely to start in April 2017 will be outlined by the government on Monday.

The weekly payment will be 144, plus inflation rises between now and 2017.

The current full state pension is 107.45 a week, but can be topped up to 142.70 with pension credit, and by the state second pension.

Plans to introduce legislation were announced in 2011 and detailed proposals are now ready.
