To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what impact assessment has been carried out for increasing the state pension age of prison officers to 68.
11 January 2021
The Pensions Act 2007 increased State Pension age to 68 between 2044-46.
A general Regulatory Impact Assessment was conducted for the Pension Act 2007. It did not look at specific professions.
Government committed in legislation to undertake a review of State Pension age every six years, which means that the statutory deadline for the publication of the next Government review is 2023.
