30,000 women hit by pension delay

Published 28/01/2011

AROUND 3, women will be forced to work two years longer than they had previously planned because of increases to the state pension age. Women born between March 6 and April 5, 1954 were due to start drawing their state pension when they reach 64, but under moves by the Government they will have to wait until they are 66. A total of 5.1m people will be affected by plans to increase the state pension age to 66 between 218 and 22.
