§ Mr. Cousins
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if the state second pension will allow for credits of qualifying contributions for periods of(a) contributory jobseeker's allowance, (b) income-related jobseeker's allowance and (c) low income, including non-state pension income, in the five years before the statutory retirement age. 
§ Mr. Rooker
The State Second Pension is designed for those who are employed, particularly low earners, and those who are unable to work regularly due to caring responsibilities or long-term disability. Individuals will not be able to accrue entitlement to the State Second Pension by virtue of receiving contributory or income-related Jobseeker's Allowance. As with people in other age groups, those in the five years before the statutory retirement age will be able to build up entitlement to the State Second Pension if they have a low income from employed earnings at or above the Lower Earnings Limit, through qualifying caring responsibilities or long-term disability.
