3.4.2 Age Equalisation For Females
In this section
In the 1993-94 Budget the Government announced that the age at which females can be granted an income support pension on the basis of age would be gradually increased to bring it into line with pension age for males.
Income support pension is:
- a social security pension
- a service pension;
- an income support supplement.
Currently, the pension age for a veteran is 60 years of age (VEA 5QA).
The pension age for a non-veteran is determined by the table below:
