Policy and Public Affairs

Independent review into State Pension Age by John Cridland CBE recommended reforms to State Pension Age and the pensions Triple Lock.

  • State Pension Age (SPA) should be increased for to age 68 starting in 2037, and should not rise by more than a year over a ten year period.
  • The Triple Lock should be withdrawn by 2020.
  • Support to carers: employers should have eldercare policies in place which set out a basic care offer, and offer Statutory Carers' Leave (using the Statutory Sick Pay model) of about 5 days.
  • People should be given access to a mid-life MOT to take stock of their circumstances, facilitated by employers and the Government.
