Cridland Review

Read the CIPD's submission to the Independent Review on the State Pension Age

On 13 October 2016 John Cridland CBE launched a consultation on the State Pension Age. The consultation looks at the key drivers of State Pension age like life expectancy, geographic location and occupation.

It also asks about the challenges faced by those who rely most on the State Pension and are therefore most likely to be affected by any future changes. These groups include carers, people with poor health or disability in later life, the self-employed, women and ethnic minorities. 

The consultation was launched to gather views on the interim report published by Mr Cridland, which considers different options for what retirement might look like beyond 2028, taking into account changes in life expectancy and wider changes in society.
