State second pension
The state second pension or S2P is an additional state pension that can be paid out to individuals who have not made enough National Insurance contributions to qualify for the full state pension.
The second state pension or additional state pension used to be linked to the state earnings-related pension scheme or SERPS. If you have a company or private pension you may have elected to opt-out of the additional state pension.
If your spouse or civil partner dies you may be able to inherit some of their second state pension.
