DWP announces plans for accelerated increase in state pension age to 68

The DWP has announced its intention to bring forward the planned increase in state pension age from 67 to 68 following the first review of state pension age to be conducted under section 27 of the Pensions Act 2014. In line with the recommendations made by John Cridland CBE in March 2017, the DWP plans to increase state pension age from 67 to 68 over the period 2037 to 2039, seven years earlier than set out in existing legislation. This change will affect everyone born between 6 April 1970 and 5 April 1978.
