The plan to bring forward the increase in state pension age to 68 has been delayed following a review which suggests a fall in life expectancy.
The state pension age will rise from 66 to 67 between April 2026 and April 2028 as planned. We understand that there is a principle of providing 10 years’ notice to changes to the state pension age. The state pension age is currently set to increase from 67 to 68 between April 2044 and April 2046. Another review will be carried out within two years to reconsider these dates.
