  We already got it here in blighty.
 
Quote from gov.
"Steadily rising every few months and to equalise at 65 for men and women in 2018. It will then increase every few months, reaching 66 by 2020. The next planned increase, towards age 67, will start in 2026 and conclude in 2028. "

 I don't think they will stop at 67 though , happy days  !

Hell lets just say 99 and be done with it.

Funny enough, the "system" was designed to get older people out of the work force to get younger people in :D

I can see this constantly increasing here in the UK, the main issue for me is many don't realise their private pension age is directly limited to the state age (maximum 10 years before). This is why I prefer ISA's over Pensions.
Based in the UK? www.moneynest.co.uk provides financial advice for 20-30yr olds.

Have a great day :)

^+1. In addition, the system also wants us to spend as much as we can. Save just enough to work until 65-66-67.... 99. :-)
We need to keep the economy going, right?
