second pension status

My wife and I reach the age of 65 in 2016. My wife paid NI for 37 years, myself for 40 years. Do we qualify for the second pension. Also anybody retiring after April 2017 could have paid considerably less NI and end up with a bigger pension is that correct. I know it will benifit the low paid, mothers, self employed but why not , if you have paid the full amount of NI prviously, be paid the same. This would be fairer. It seems to me with the new rules that I could have paid NI for 30 years for nothing.
