Good news for some women: Amendments to the proposed increase in State Pension Age

According to a statement made by the Government today, plans to raise the state pension age to 66 in 2020 will be delayed by six months to address concerns of thousands of women who have already had their state pension age increased from age 60 to 65.

The government has listened to concerns about the effect that the current proposals would have on certain groups of women.  But who will benefit, if these proposals go through?

The Direct Gov website has a very useful table showing the revised increase in State Pension age, by birth date, from 65 to 66 (for men and women) and shows by date of birth those women who will still receive their State Pension before age 65.
