The Graduated Pension Scheme

Will my pension be affected by the National Insurance Graduated Pension Scheme which ceased in 1975?

In general, most scheme members did not participate in the National Insurance Graduated Pension Scheme which came to an end with effect from 6 April 1975 and therefore their scheme benefits are unaffected. Those few who did participate will have their scheme pensions reduced correspondingly by a small amount if the amount of Graduated Pension earned is more than £5.20 per year.
