Pension age – changes brought forward

by on July 20, 2017

On a busy news day for the BBC (see #notonthelist), the increase in state pension age is to be brought forward to 2037.  This change impacts those who are currently aged between 39 and 47.  In principle this gives those affected 20 years to plan for this change, although future changes are not necessarily ruled out.

The timing of the announcement – at the same time as research reporting that the rate of life expectance increase was slowing – was noted by many as slightly incongruous.
