If you are confused about when the government is going to provide your State Pension then rest assured, you aren’t alone!
The State Pension Age is currently 65 for men.
For women, the current State Pension age is increasing from 60 to 65 from April 2010. This affects women born on or after 6 April 1950. But is staggered.
Are you following? Well, here’s an example, a woman who is 60 today (b. 08/11/1951) would have a state pension age of 61 years 7 months and 28 days. Simple.
However, the state pension age is also rising to age 66 from December 2018 for men and women. This is staggered as well.
And just to ensure that no future generation misses out on the fun they are increasing the State Pension Age to 67 between 2034 & 2036 and to age 68 between 2044 & 2046.
Need a simple State Pension Age calculator? All you need is your date of birth and sex – which after some careful thought I managed and the calculator says my state pension date is 29 December 2051! Great.
