star this property answer text <p>Women born between 6 April 1950 and 5 April 1953 were affected by State Pension age equalisation under the Pensions Act 1995. The Pensions Act 2011 accelerated the equalisation of State Pension age, and included transitional arrangements limiting State Pension age delays, affecting women born between 6 April 1953 and 5 December 1953. It also brought forward the increase in State Pension age from 65 to 66 which affected women born between 6 December 1953 and 5 April 1960.</p><p> </p><p>The Department for Work and Pensions only holds estimates at a Great Britain level.</p><p> </p><p>The Office for National Statistics publishes data bi-annually on population numbers and projections.

star this property answer text <p>For people who cannot work, the welfare system will continue to provide a safety-net, as it does for people of all ages now. We will spend around £55 billion this year (2019/20) on benefits to support disabled people and people with health conditions. This is around 2.5 per cent of GDP, and over 6 per cent of government spending, and as a share of GDP, the UK’s public spending is second highest in the G7 [OECD 2015 data].</p><p> </p><p>The new State Pension is actually more generous for many women, who often did less well in the past. Women who reached State Pension age in 2016 are estimated to receive more State Pension on average over their lifetime than women ever have before. By 2030, over 3 million women stand to gain an average of £550 more per year as a result of the recent reforms.</p><p> </p><p>There are now 5 million women aged 50 and over in the workforce compared to 4.2 million five years ago. This is a record high.</p><p> </p><p>This Government is committed to improving the outlook for older workers, including women, affected by increases in the State Pension age, and removing the barriers they may face. We have removed the default retirement age, meaning most people can choose when to retire, and extended the right to flexible working.</p><p> </p><p>To support people with their future planning, DWP launched an online web page in February this year which brings together money, job and health elements of the mid-life MOT: <a href="https://www.yourpension.gov.uk/mid-life-mot/" target="_blank">https://www.yourpension.gov.uk/mid-life-mot/</a></p><p> </p><p>To support employers, Business in The Community has also created MOT guides that support business. <a href="https://age.bitc.org.uk/tools-impact-stories/toolkits" target="_blank">https://age.bitc.org.uk/tools-impact-stories/toolkits</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>Concessionary travel is a devolved policy area, so the administrative arrangements in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland differ from one other. All local authorities in England have the power to introduce local concessions, including the extension of concessionary travel to those who are yet to reach the qualifying age.</p><p> </p><p>The age of eligibility for concessionary travel in England has been rising in line with the changes to the state pension age. Equalising the age difference between men and women addresses the current position of non-disabled citizens of working age receiving free bus passes. This in turn will help the financial sustainability of the scheme, which currently costs around £1 billion annually</p> more like this
