This Act has introduced some thinking time for the Government in terms of its plans to remove the age 75 deadline for compulsory annuitisation. The Act does this by increasing the compulsory annuitisation age to 77 for two years, thus giving the Government two years to come up with their final plans, and giving individuals who are reaching 75 years time to defer their decision until the Government’s plans are finalised. In the meantime, a consultation on how to implement this has taken place, and draft legislation is expected within the next six months.
