Changes to State Pension age

The age at which you can get your State Pension is changing.


When can I claim my State Pension?

In November 2018, State Pension age was 65 for men and women. However, this is gradually increasing and now depends on when you were born.

Check your State Pension age

Use the Government's State Pension calculator to find out your State Pension age.


Will the State Pension age change again?

State Pension age is gradually increasing for men and women, and will reach 67 by 2028.

State Pension age is going to be kept under review, which means that it could change again in the future, depending on different factors, such as changes in life expectancy.
