We agree with the equalisation of the State Pension ages of men and women, but not with the unfair way the changes were implemented - inadequate notice, faster than promised and no time to make alternative plans. Our aim is to achieve fair recompense for all women born in the 1950s who have been affected by the way in which changes to the State Pension Age were introduced by successive governments between 1995 and 2011. Since the Ombudsman's ruling of maladministration in July we have been pressing for fair and fast compensation for all 1950s women who have suffered an injustice because of the Pension Acts.
Compensation for losses for those women who have already reached their State Pension age.
Non means-tested bridging payments for those women who have not yet reached State Pension age.
We are not asking for the State Pension Age to revert to 60, and no specific age group should receive more favourable treatment.
