The state pension age is set to rise. In the 2011 Autumn Statement the Chancellor announced that the Government intended to bring forward a previously announced increase in the State Pension age to 67, which would be phased in between 2026 and 2028. The DWP’s timetable for these changes can be found here.
The headlines suggested that this timetable was set to be subject to further change, with increases to 69 and 70 on the cards for many of today’s young workers.
But despite the spin has a new timetable actually been announced? It appears not.
