State Pension Age increasing
There are two elements to this:
The age at which females will receive their State pension is being increased from 60 to 65 to bring it in line with the State Pension Age (SPA) for men.
This increase is being phased in gradually over a period of years with the result that women born between 5th April 1950 and 5th April 1955 will have an SPA of between 60 and 65 – all women born after 5th April 1955 will automatically have an SPA of 65.
The original intention was that this increase would be phased in over a period of years ending in April 2020.
