I thought UK state pensions were automatic?
I can't remember having to apply for mine.
I had been living here, Spain, for 5 years before I had my UK pension at 65.

Hi

I applied for my State Pension in 2016 when I was 65. I went straight to the Pension Office in UK. Did not use a Digital Certificate only by post. Look up the Address on the official government website.

Good Luck
