This report details some new proposals in order to create a fairer state pension system. The author acknowledges that the expectation of a comfortable and lengthy retirement funded by the State is now obsolete and there has to be more reliance on personal savings. One of the proposals advocated in this paper is increasing the state pension ten years after the onset of the State Pension Age. The report also looks into ways of prioritising support for those pensioners on low incomes.
