People born between 1970 and 1978 will have to wait an extra year, until they are 68, to claim their state pension. Those affected are currently between the ages of 39 and 47. Anyone younger than 39 will have to wait for future announcements to learn what their precise pension age will be.

The decision to increase the state pension age from 67 to 68 between 2037 and 2039 is seven years earlier than previously planned and reflects increasing longevity.

There is also a state pension age calculator on the Gov.UK website which will tell people when they will reach their state pension age, under current legislation based on their gender and date of birth.
