    Pre 97 Additional State Pension 24th Nov 11 at 5:18 PM
    I am helping a friend to try to understand her State Benefits Statement.
    She is widowed and receives the normal Basic State Pension
    But we are worried that she seems to be receiving a large "Pre 97 Additional State Pension"
    She did not pay NIC much with having children and being self employed, and her husband also did not pay NIC for the full 44 years.
    I am reluctant to ring the Pensions service in case they simply delete it.
    The statement shows:
    Pre 97 additional State Pension of 145.10 (nearly the maximum)
    reduced by
    Contracted Out Deduction of 46.70

    Any clues greatly received
