The following Employment Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley in association with Vince Ashall provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
Retirement age, or more precisely, State Pension Age, is a ‘movable feast’. This will be the normal situation as the State Pension Age is increased; current legislation provides for phased increase to age 68.
Since April 2010, the state retirement age for women has been increasing in order to align it with the state pension age for men, currently set at 65. This only affects women born on or after 6 April 1950.
See Example 1.
The timetable for increasing women’s state pension age to 65 was changed following the decision to increase state pension age for both men and women to 66 (see below).
From April 2016, the process of alignment at age 65 was accelerated and completed in November 2018. The timetable can be viewed on the GOV.UK website.
This timetable shows the state pension age dates for women under:
the original proposals to increase their state pension age to 65
the accelerated change up to November 2018
