The official age of retirement in the UK is the age that people are eligible for a UK pension. For men, this age is 65 years. Women in the UK are eligible for retirement at the age of 60. The retirement age for women is due to change before November 2018. At this time, it will be raised to 65 years old. It is important for UK residents to know that they do not have to retire if they do not wish to. Many people continue to work and get the state pension at the same time. Proposed changes to the retirement age Due to the aging population and declining birthrates, the government fears that there will not be enough workers in the future to fund superannuation plans. Due to this and the increasing life expectancy, the retirement age in the UK will be raised in the future. The retirement age for both men and women is expected to rise to 66 years by 2020. By 2046, the government hopes to raise the retirement age to 68 years.

State pensions do not give the average person who retires enough money to maintain their current standard of living.

Once this figure has been determined, money can be raised from saving current income and making wise investments.
