The article presents comments of Steve Webb, Minister of State for Pensions in Great Britain, on the government's plans to link the state pension age to life expectancy. He informs that the state pension age will rise to 67 in 2036 and to 68 in 2046 under current plans. He deciphers two potential options for state pension reforms in which the first is an acceleration of the previous administrations plans, and second will see the introduction of a single-tier state pension of around 140 pounds.
