Phasing out the default retirement age - LITRG response

Published on 4 November 2010

The Government recently consulted on proposals which will prevent employers, except perhaps in exceptional circumstances, from forcing employees to retire at age 65. This is of course coupled with confirmation in the recent Spending Review to step up the escalation in state pension age for both men and women to 66 by 2020. LITRG makes a number of points in response as to the impact of the line between working and retirement age becoming increasingly blurred.
