A bill to overhaul the UK state pension system has been included in the Queen's Speech.
The state pension age will rise from 65 to 68 by 2046, if the bill passes.
In return for a later pension age, the link between the state pension and average earnings is to be restored during the next parliament.
In addition, it should take fewer years of National Insurance Contributions to earn a full state pension, a move aimed at helping women.
The government said it wanted an: "Enduring pension settlement built on a consensus" and a "state system more generous and more widely available and provide a solid foundation on which to save for retirement."
