I called up again and as my wife has had a deferral of her Pension over an extended period they cannot take the application over the phone. However, you and your wife are making progress in so far as (presumably) you have now been told how to proceed.Don't forget to read https://www.litrg.org.uk/tax-guides/pensioners/what-state-pension-deferral underWhat will I get when I claim my deferred state pension?If you reached state pension age before 6 April 2016
We have just received a letter saying when would we like the Pension to start as we did not indicate the date we wish to claim the Pension.It can either be on 3/8/2020 or one year backdated or 4 months postdated.On the form I completed the date we wanted it to start as the day my wife turned 60 - I assume this was wrong?
