State Pension Age 66


The State Pension Age was originally set at 65 for men and 60 for women.

Between April 2010 and November 2018, the retirement age for women is to be increased to 65 to match that of men.

As part of the Government's Spending Review, they have announced new proposals for increasing the State Pension Age further.  From December 2018 the State Pension Age for both men and women will start to increase to reach age 66 by April 2020.

Women born before 6th April 1953 and men born before 6th December 1953 will not be affected by these new proposals.

The Government is also considering the timetable for future increases to the State Pension Age from 66 to 68.
