An overview of the state pension age rise

6 million people will be affected by the recent Government announcement that the state pension age rise to 68 will now be brought in between 2037 and 2039. This was originally set to be phased in from 2044.

The Government has also committed to regular reviews of the state pension. This is potentially concerning, as it could mean the age may rise even more.

There is still time to review your retirement plan, especially if you are aged between 39 and 47 and will be directly affected by the change.
