ESA and PIP on reaching pension age 1 month 3 weeks ago #264828

I've got a similar question - I'm going to be 65 in February but I don't reach my pension age until the next February (2023) at 66. Are they moving everyone to their new pension ages or are they taking a set pension age of 65 for everyone? I was meant to have had my review already after 5 years but it was postponed until September 2022 because of COVID which is 6 months before I become 66. It's all so confusing. ty

Hi toriar

I've moved your post to its own topic, we ask members not to post their questions in other member's topics as it can lead to the wrong advice being given or taken.

To find out your state pension age go to : www.gov.uk/state-pension-age

State Pension age of 65 no longer exists to new claimants, SP age is now dependant on the date of your birthday, M/F have now aligned, so it is the same date for both sex.

Thanks Gary - sorry about bombing on someone else's question. I've read somewhere that if you're eligible for PIP at any time in the year before your pension age you are eligible for it to continue - is that true?

All fingers crossed for you too

Hi I've read that if you are eligible to receive PIP at any time in the year before your state pension age PIP will continue is this true?
