WASPI scandal: apologise and pay out compensation to the women affected

Bring in emergency legislation to compensate the thousands of women affected by the mismanagement of the increase in the Women’s State Pension Age by the Department of Work and Pensions and make sure the Department of Work and Pensions apologises for the injustice.

Why is this important?

A major government watchdog says thousands of women were “failed” by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) over the rise in state pension age and must be compensated for the “significant injustice” caused. Yet the DWP refuses to apologise, leading the Ombudsman to take the rare move of calling on the Government to intervene.

An entire generation of women have endured decades of financial struggle because of this scandal. The Government must act swiftly by bringing in emergency legislation to compensate all the women affected with the watchdog’s suggestion of £2950, and apologise for the immense suffering caused. It’s time to finally give thousands of women the justice they deserve.
