    State pension paid monthly

    State pension paid monthly 20th Jan 12 at 4:21 PM
    Why are we not given the option of having the state pension paid into bank accounts monthly?

    When working I was paid at the end of each month and now having recently retired I receive my other pension income at monthly intervals but the state pension is paid every 4 weeks which makes it difficult to keep control of my finances.

    It would be very easy for the pension service to calculate the monthly payments which could then be credited to bank accounts on the same day each month.

    I am sure that there are many pensioners who would take advantage of this option and look forward to receiving your comments.
