    Thinking of getting Married - State Pension Query

    Thinking of getting Married - State Pension Query 27th Dec 12 at 8:04 PM
    Hi, I am 64 years old and in receipt of the basic State Pension plus a few pounds extra for Additional State Pension or something like that!

    I am thinking of getting married to my long term partner, he also gets the State Pension ++ a few small extras. Its not much but we can just about manage. Am I right in thinking that our State Pensions will be unchanged if we marry - we wont be forced to claim a married couple's joint pension which would be less than our individual ones?

    Thanks for any help
