Pension age to rise

24th June 2010

Plans to raise the state pension age for men to 66 is to be speeded up by the government and could be in force by as early as 2016.

Ministers will also raise the option of extending it further, perhaps to 70 and beyond in the following decades and the current default retirement age of 65 - at which workers can be legally axed by employers - is also set to end. Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said this would stop people being "cast on the scrap heap."
