The Labour Party has promised to review the state pension age for those doing manual work. The party has also pledged to scrap planned increases to the retirement age beyond 66.
Under government plans, the retirement age be 66 by 2020 and 67 by 2028.
Unveiling his party’s manifesto today, Jeremy Corbyn said it is “the most radical, hopeful, people-focused, fully-costed plan in modern times.”
Currently, there is no differentiation in the age at which people receive the state pension. Those working in public services such as the police or fire and rescue can receive their pensions earlier.
Labour has said its review will look at “retirement ages for physically arduous and stressful occupations, including shift workers, in the public and private sectors.”
The party has also said it will recompense the WASPI women born in the 1950s.
