Department for Work and Pensions
The main function of the Department for Work and Pensions is to work out the amount of state pension and pension credit each of us is entitled to. This function is performed by The Pension Service, who also make the payments.
It delivers the policy decided on by the government and is behind the introduction of both NEST and the new flat-rate pension, both of which are expected to be implemented by 2015 or 2016.
The DWP's programmes are delivered by The Pension Service. The Pension Service is part of the Pensions, Disabilities and Carers Service (PDCS).
