Think tank proposes raising State Pension Age to 75 years

A think tank associated with Ian Duncan Smith has proposed that the State Pension Age should raise to 75 years so that older people can relish the benefits of working! This is against the Alliance’s Policy on State Pension Age which does not see a justification for extending the SPA beyond 68. Whilst we welcome provision of support for those who wish to continue to work, they should not be forced to do so by withholding their state pension. Life expectancy is now slowing and the justification given for this idea is thin to say the least https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/state-pension-age-rise-conservatives-think-tank-centre-for-social-justice-a9064071.html
