State pension age changes mean some Britons face longer wait – are you impacted?

2 mins read


Changes to the state pension age have been scheduled by the Government and these could impact the retirement of millions of Britons. People can check online to see if they will be affected.

They can then find out what their state pension age is projected to be, and the date they will reach it.

The service can also show someone what their Pension Credit qualifying age is expected to be.

Pension Credit is a benefit which can be claimed by pensioners on lower incomes.

An individual’s Pension Credit age is usually the same as their state pension age.

A Government review into the state pension age is currently ongoing.

At the previous review, it was recommended that the next review assess whether the state pension increase to 68 should be brought forward.

If this happens, even more Britons would face a longer wait for their state pension.

The review must be published by May 7, 2023.
