Next phase of increases in State Pension Age has begun

Now that State Pension Age has equalised at age 65 for men and women, the next phase of increases has begun.

If you were born on 6 December 1953, you might have expected to claim your State Pension at age 65 on 6 December 2018. But not so – the new State Pension date for anyone born between 6 December 1953 and 5 January 1954 is 6 March 2019.

For those born after 5 January 1954, State Pension date is deferred further. The full table of new State Pension dates for those born between 6 December 1953 and 5 April 1960 is replicated below. This table, more information and the tables covering the further increases in State Pension Age for those born after 5 April 1960 can be found at https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/310231/spa-timetable.pdf
