People who start work today won't get their state pension until they're age 72

05 December 2013

By Ed Wilson

Linking the state pension age to life expectancy means we could easily see people having to wait many more years before they get their state pension.

In his 2013 Autumn Statement, the Chancellor announced that someone in their 40s won’t get their state pension until they are aged 68; the linkage to life expectancy is likely to mean someone starting work now will have to wait to age 72, and a child born today is unlikely to receive their state pension until they reach 75.
