The age at which people are able to access their state pension is changing.
it was announced that the equalisation of state pension age at 65 will be brought forward to November 2018.
The pension age for men and women will then increase to 66 by April 2020. The Treasury hope this will save around £30bn through a reduction in spending on state pensions and pensioner benefits by 2025.
It was also announced that the maximum savings credit award in pension credit will be frozen for four years.
