All State Pension accrued up to the point of independence anywhere within the UK will count as your State Pension entitlement.
After independence, any pension entitlement gained by working in Scotland will accrue to your Scottish State Pension. Any pension entitlement from working in England, Wales or Northern Ireland will accrue to the UK State Pension and will be payable by the Westminster Government.
