Ha, that's a $64,000 question!

First of all, just to confuse you, pensions comes under one of the reserved matters for the UK government so it's the same throughout the UK.

Currently the State Pension age is 65 for men and 60 for women. However, this will increase for women from 2010, so that by 2020 it will be 65.
    Women born between 6 April 1951 and 5 April 1952 retire at 61

    Women born between 6 April 1952 and 5 April 1953 retire at 62

    Women born between 6 April 1953 and 5 April 1954 retire at 63

    Women born between 6 April 1954 and 5 April 1955 retire at 64

    Women born after 6 April 1955 retire at 65.

The state pension age for both men and women is to increase from 65 to 68 between 2024 and 2046.
