Your State Pension age is the earliest age that you can receive the basic State Pension. State Pension age was equalised at 65 for men and women in 2018 and increased to 66 in 2020.

Under current legislation State Pension age is due to rise to 67 between 2026 and 2028 and to 68 between 2044 and 2046. However, the Government has announced plans to link rises in State Pension age to increases in life expectancy.

You can use the Government’s State Pension age calculator to Check your State Pension age.
