Around 12.2 per cent of men in the age group were in employment in April to June last year, as against 11.6 per cent of women, the ONS said.

The state pension age for women has, however, been rising.

The ONS also said, overall, two-thirds of pensioner workers were employed part-time.

State pension age for women starts between 60 and 62 depending on their date of birth.

For women, state pension age starts at between 60 and 62 depending on their date of birth and those who worked beyond this age were most likely to be cleaners, administrators, or working in professional occupations, the ONS Pension Trends report said.
