We want the Government to admit the failings behind both the 1995, 2011 and 2016 Pensions Acts, and make proper restitution to all the women involved.
The decision to let media inform us of the changes in the 1995 Act has had serious consequences for many thousands of women. This was compounded by ignoring the research done which highlighted the lack of awareness amongst women. It was 2009 before any direct mailing took place and then to only a few women as it was stopped to impose the further changes and accelerate the timescales.
Why is this important?
3.8 million women have been caught up in government efforts to cut the costs of paying for the state pension and to equalise the age at which men and women receive the state pension.
We are your moms, grans, wives, sisters, aunts and friends and never ever thought we would be protesting in our 60s following what many term the ‘Great State Pension Robbery’. I start this petition in support of all the campaigning pensions group who all want justice.
Please sign the petition for Pension justice for 1950s Women.
