Detail of outcome
The Pensions Act 2014 requires the government to review the State Pension age during each Parliament.
The State Pension age independent review is gathering evidence and will consider a broad range of factors before making recommendations to the government in 2017.
The independent review will note existing arrangements already in law. However, it is forward looking and keen to consider the changing demographic, economic and behavioural landscape of the future. These changes, rather than the present context, will be at the heart of its recommendations on setting the right State Pension age.
It is hoped, that this interim report and the questions it asks, will stimulate wider discussion. The independent review welcomes any research, insights or supporting evidence.
