What age can you begin claiming State Pension?
The State Pension age is the earliest age you can claim your State Pension.
Your State Pension age depends on when you were born.
The State Pension ages are undergoing radical changes to bring State Pension age in line with life expectancy.
Since April 2010, the Government has been raising the age of State Pension every few years.
The changes saw the State pension age rise to 65 for women between 2010 and 2018.
For men and women this is currently 65, but is scheduled to rise to 66 by October 2020.
The State Pension age is then scheduled to rise to 67 between 2026 and 2028.
The age of eligibility for State Pension is due to rise to 68 between 2037 to 2039, although the specific timetable has not yet been confirmed.
There are plans to make further changes but these have yet to be revealed.
