Surely it wasn’t a good idea to consult the State Pension Age Tables under the Gov Web site. Really in our case, we should carry on working till our 67th Birthday. It is the reality or should it be? Guess is you could retire when you can afford it. As of interest, you will wonder what is our State Pension. Well there is a BETA service on line Check My State Pension to do so. Note if you don’t have a Gateway ID, it can take up to 7 days to receive one by post…Day 1.
