Britons 'might be 70’ before getting state pension as workers 'pay price' for triple lock

1 min read


If the state pension age does continue to rise, and life expectancy for Britons does not increase with it, the length of time people are able to benefit from receiving their state pension could shrink.

Ms O’Connor explained: “A life of paying National Insurance contributions may not end up rewarding people for very long.

“Life expectancy is no longer rising universally and has stalled in some regions.

“In some parts of the country, someone retiring at 68 might only expect to live a further five or so years, and the elephant in the room is what working past your healthy years can do to an individual’s life expectancy.”
