The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) has proposed that the government should bring forward its state pension age raising of 68 by a few years instead of waiting until 2044 as is currently proposed.
This has worried a pair of charities in particular, which noted that the current gradual increase in the state pension age was agreed after a long consultation with experts.
Andrew Harrop, head of public policy for Age Concern and Help the Aged, said a shortening of this timescale could have serious implications for people approaching the age when they originally expected to be able to claim their state pension from authorities.
He continued: "It would be completely nonsensical to expect people to work for longer as long as the Default Retirement Age means employers can force workers out of a job at 65.
"The 2010 review is too late for people who need to continue working now; this outmoded law must be scrapped immediately."
