Watch: When can you retire?

Rishi Sunak’s government has announced that plans to bring a state pension age change forward have been scrapped. Retirement has been a subject that’s been in the news a lot of late, following Jeremy Hunt’s Spring Budget and the mass protests in France. The Chancellor announced controversial UK pension reforms in his major speech earlier in March, as part of a bid to get more people backnto the workplace. These included scrapping the upper limit for pension pots, and upping the amount you can put away in a pension without paying tax on it in a financial year.
