As had already been announced by Government, legislation was passed to keep the State Pension age at 66. There is now no provisions in legislation to trigger a future increase of the State Pension age to 67 from 01/01/2021 and to 68 from 01/01/2028.
New legislation will need to be passed if the State Pension age is to rise in the future.
However, in order to consider this further, the Government has established a Commission on Pensions & the Commission will examine the sustainability and eligibility issues in respect of State Pension arrangements. The Commission is due to report by 30 June 2021 & the Government have said they will make their decisions on these issues by the end of 2021.
