Article preview: State pension age equalisation has taken place in the UK. The gradual change now means that women qualify to start getting their state pension from age 65, the same age as men. State pension equalisation has taken a long time, 25 years in fact. During that time, the age rise for women was gradually phased in, with women celebrating their 65th birthday on 6th November 2018 the first to qualify for a state pension at the same age as men. Despite equal ages for state pensions, equality of retirement income remains a long way off.
