Sate pension rises, now 66
About 1 Week, 1 Day, 15 Hours, 17 Minutes ago.
The age at which most people start to receive the state pension has now officially hit 66 after steady rises in the qualifying age in recent years.
Men and women born between 6 October, 1954, and 5 April, 1960, will start receiving their pension on their 66th birthday.
For those born after that, there will be a phased increase in state pension age to 67, and eventually 68.
It comes as the chancellor vowed the "triple lock" pledge is safe.
