Six million men and women will have to wait a year longer than they expected to get their state pension, the government has announced.
The rise in the pension age to 68 will now be phased in between 2037 and 2039, rather than from 2044 as was originally proposed.
Those affected are currently between the ages of 39 and 47. Anyone younger than 39 will have to wait for future announcements to learn what their precise pension age will be.
The change will affect those born between 6 April 1970 and 5 April 1978.
