State Pension

State Pension Age (SPA) is the earliest age you can claim your State Pension and depends on when you were born.

State Pension ages have been undergoing radical changes since April 2010. The changes will see the SPA rise to 65 for women between 2010 and 2018, and then to 66, 67 and 68 for both men and women. There are plans to change State Pension ages further.
