State Pension Age Change

2 Replies

Thousands of women have had their pension age changed TWICE or THREE times with mostly no notification. My wife had a SPA changed in 1995 to 62 and a half and then in 2011 changed again to 64 and a half. From her class at school she will retire in March 2018 , another of her friends March 2019 then another 2020 .They were born 6 months apart but retire 2 years apart. None of them were given any notice of the change. In fact one only found out a few weeks ago when she came out to visit us. It was a big surprise to her. It has affected men and women, both have had their age for state pension changedand both have had their bus pass age increased.   I must stress they don`t disagree with increasing the SPA , but it is the timescale that is too short a time. Also it is NOT true that many of these women will be better off with the new pension, the new pension will be £155 maximum, and anyone that opted out of serps will get a reduced amount.     Please sign the petiton today it is only fair   https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/110776   For more info look at   http://www.paullewismoney.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/women-given-just-2-years-notice-of.html   http://www.catherinemckinnellmp.co.uk/newcastle-north-mp-steps-up-state-pension-age-campaign/   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyPWwZSlOUk&feature=em-upload_owner#action=share

I'd love to know how this was thought of - the format for the dates for retirement!!! Date of birth lottery!

Sorry we do not need to hear that "life is not fair" - this is unjust. This is not a male against female rant!
