The Government has announced that its plans to increase the State pension age to 66 is to be delayed. This is with the prime aim of helping women who would be most affected by the rise. From April 2010, the womens’ pension age has already been increasing from 60 to 65. The current Pensions Bill proposes that this increase is completed by 2018, with a further rise to 66 effective April 2020. The Bill has now been amended to delay the further rise for both men and women until October 2020.
If enacted, the Pensions Bill will see the pension age for women reach 65 in November 2018 then the pension ages for both men and women reach 66 by October 2020.
