There is talk of increasing the pension age to 70. That's three score years and ten!! Apparently the life expectancy for a 45 year old male is rising by six hours a day.

The age at which people are entitled to a UK pension is being increased for anyone born after April 1st 1959. That's UK pension that is. It will go up in stepped stages.

There is a calculator at

My siblings wont be pleased. :shock:

I can remember being in school in the 1970's and it was said that by the year 2000 the retirement age would be 55!! Now look what's happening!!

It's a good job I was born before 1959!! - at least I'll get a little bit of money when I thought I might get it!
