The State Second Pension (formerly SERPS) was the additional state pension, payable to individuals from State Pension Age if they attained State Pension Age before 6 April 2016.

Initially, S2P was an earnings-related pension but from April 2009 it began building up as a flat rate pension until 6 April 2016 when it was replaced with the new single tier State Pension.
