    Default UK pension age to rise to 66 from 2020

    Well my fellow Brist we gotta work until we reach 66 to get a full pension.The French had mass strikes yesterday cos their state pension age is rising from 60 to 62, they don't know how easy they have it. Or are we Brits just suckers!

    Hmm.. I'm hoping the economy gets better before that so they can rescind this nonsense. I know some people who can barely manage at 66.

    What? Are they hoping most folks will die off at 65?

    My mother's 68 and would have retired a year ago if the folks at her workplace didn't try to get rid of her. Now she is in for at least another 2 years. In fact I doubt she'll ever retire.

    @ GorgeousKinkz - have the Brits ever rescinded anything?

    ^^ Lol i think they are hoping that they'll die before then. I know there are people who can work till they're 70+ which is great but what about those who can't? Iono... I just think again the workers are being punished whereas those on benefits get a free ride.

    In the U.S. they changed our retirement age back when that devil Ronald Reagan was president, back in the "80s. Now, anyone born after 1959 has to be 66yrs old for full retirement...The sad thing is that in this country, Black women are least likely to be able to reach and enjoy that retirement age. Tho perhaps with more ppl graduating from college now the odds may change in our favor.

    Hence its so important to invest in good health habits before you get to that age when all the damage is done. Hope we all live to 100 just to piss off these politicians who want to work us to death!

    like the rest of the budget its an absolute joke..

    @gorgeouskinkz, its always easy to lambast the poor and disadvantaged, but I notice no ones doing this to the rich city boys who are largely to blame for gmabling the countrys money away on market forecasts they dreamt up..they still get to keep their bonuses not to mention being bailed out by BILLIONS of our bloody tax money..

    I know there are older people who want to continue to work well after retirement age, My mum included. it should be a choice. And what about making room for the young in the work place.

    absolutely @ mariajay...this government has done exactly what Ed Miliband has accused them of which is instigating not policies that will actually benefit the Uk and its people but ideologically led knee jerk reactions that resemble something straight out of the daily mail..I really fail to see how any of the new measures will benefit anyone..well except for the rich of course

    although possibly due to the heating funds being reduced for old people combined with primary care trusts having their funding slashed..most older people will die before reaching a decent age cancelling out all issues!

    The irony is we now need those rich city boys to make more money so the banks can pay back the tax payer, we don't benefit from a broke bank. Greed caused the recession - greedy bankers, and greedy customers getting into debt thinking the gravy train will always have gravy. And the government borrowing money like there was no tomorrow. Well tomorrow showed up...
