Reduce the state pension age to 63 for all
Reduce the state pension age to 63. Some jobs may not able to be done the older we get for example bricklayers, HGV drivers. Of course, there will always be an exception with some elderly people being more able than others.
The current state pension age is between 66 and 68, but the Government should look to reduce this to 63 for all.
The Government should be doing more to create jobs for young people by allowing older people to retire if they choose to at 63 so that these jobs can be filled by younger people.
This would also protect elderly people from needing to work if that job is too demanding. This would also free up grandparents to support their children with childcare when they are working.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
