State pension age review underway

John Cridland, former chair of the CBI, has been commissioned by the UK Government to undertake a further review of the state pension age, with a view to making recommendations to the Prime Minister on how it should be set after 2028.

Mr Cridland has floated already the suggestion that the universal state pension age could be replaced by a ‘tailored’ one to better reflect changing patterns of work and retirement, which could lead to a further increase.

The state pension age is already due to rise from 65 to 68 in the next few years. As the teachers’ normal pension age and the state pension age are linked, the review has the potential to have major consequences for the profession.

The NASUWT is continuing to campaign for the link to be broken, due to the highly stressful and workload-intensive nature of teaching. The NASUWT will be submitting evidence to the Cridland Review.
