UK State pension age rises: When will you retire?


As the retirement age moves towards 70, The Telegraph forecasts when you’ll be able to claim a state pension

This guide was first published in December 2013 and is updated as news breaks and legislation changes.

The soaring cost of Britain’s ageing population will force the state pension to 70 and beyond, the Government has said. It will now rise “in line with life expectancy” – currently 79 for men and 82.7 for women and rising.

The warnings flickering across the news headlines have left many in their 40s, 50s and 60s with little idea of when they will be able to claim their entitlements.

So The Telegraph has produced this guide to the Government’s current plans – and potential future changes. Determining the date on which you can claim an old-age income from the state should inform your retirement savings plans.
