Call for evidence on raising the state pension age

Close date: 6 August 2010

The Government invites individuals and organisations to submit evidence on when the state pension age should be raised to 66, on the basis that people will be receiving their state pension for longer than anticipated when the increase was determined. The previous Government fixed the increase in the state pension age to 66 to take place by 2026, to 67 by 2036 and to 68 by 2046.
