At the moment, the State Pension age is 65 for men and just over 62 for women. This is the age at which you’ll receive your pension from the State.
Between now and 2018, the State Pension age for women will rise to 65. And in the future it’ll rise again to 68 for both men and women.
If you retire before you get your State Pension, it’s worth checking that your other pension savings or income can cover your living costs until then.
