You may have seen in the press this month that the minimum pension age is changing.

In 2014, the government announced that the minimum age that you can access your personal pension would be increasing from 55 to 57. Until now this change had not been bought into law. An announcement in September 2020 from the government has confirmed that this change will go ahead as planned in 2028.

It will impact everyone born after 6th April 1973.
