State pension change for women

From Tuesday 6th November, women in the UK began to qualify for their state pensions at the same age as men - currently 65.

The move to equalise male and female pension ages began 25 years ago, under John Major's government, and has been gradually phased in.

For more than 60 years - up until 2010 - women received their pensions at the age of 60, but that has been rising ever since.
