Is there any difference between (state) pension age and retirement age?

I think both have a same meaning. Would you please explain if these phrases are different?

State pension age
Pension age
Retirement age

Thanks in advance

    That would depend a lot on the jurisdiction. Some countries have no state pension at all. Some countries have a compulsory retirement age, some don't. Pension age would depend on the contract of the pension.
    Often, there would be a bracket of ages, with a pension age coming first (when someone is eligible for a pension) and some time later, a compulsory retirement age. Someone could then choose to retire at any time during that period, as it suited their personal circumstances.

    Depend on policy of government.
