You must be at the start of the age group that is in phased transition to 67, and the 8 days comes from the way they are doing the transition.
Likewise my current state pension date is 15 days before I'm 66 because I'm near the end of the age group that is in the phased transition to 66. However, under the current Tory bill my pension age will go up again to 66 exactly, costing me 15 days of pension (I think I'll manage).
Don't be surprised if your pension age is at least 67 by the time you get there.

If we're talking about factual discussion ... thats an awfully emotive word you've just used in criticising me. Not factual at all.
Now, with the changes proaby being introduced in this bill thats currently going through parliament, I'll probably be having another 1 year and 3 months increase. Thats six years, yes, but its definitely in two increases, not one. And two sets of legislation, presumably? This latest lot is being introduced by legislation, so the previous lot will probably have been, tho I don't know the date.
My issue, not whinge, *is* with the 2011 legislation. What have I said that made you think otherwise? In my very first post on this thread, I said I had no problem with the equalisation of pension age, which is what the 1995 legislation would have achieved, albeit at age 65, not at age 66.

Lets hope they don't increase both by one year next year and then for every year on.
Thats right they would save a lot never having to pay anything.

can someone explain to me why this is going to cost the tax payer so much when the aim is to have people mainly women paying tax longer which is needed to fund the pensions, yes there will be costs for the changes but surely the savings in not paying the pensions out for x number years to some will go someway to cover that ?
