The retirement age was previously 65 has been phased out so that now, most people can continue to work for as long as they would like.

The retirement age in the UK has been scrapped. People can work as long as they want to - so long as they're capable of doing the job they're paid for.

The default retirement age (65) is no longer in effect in most professions. Most workers can now work as long as they wish before retirement.

The Default Retirement Age (DRA) in the UK was scrapped by the 'Employment Equality (Repeal of Retirement Age Provisions) Regulations 2011'. Some employers can still set a compulsory retirement age if they can justify the decision under the 'Equality Act 2010' but in most professions, people can now work as long as they wish.
