More people in the United Kingdom will have to work until they are 68 before being entitled to a state pension, under plans to be announced by Chancellor George Osborne.

The current state pension age was set to change from 65 to 68 in 2046. But that date will be brought forward to the mid-2030s, Mr Osborne will say in his Autumn statement today.

And the government minister is expected to also warn tha the pension age could rise again, to 69, in the late 2040s.

That will mean that people currently in their 20s may have to work until they are 70 before they are entitled to receive the state pension.
