Put pension age back to 60 for women, not 66.

Why is this important?

The Coalition's astounding volte face for #50sWomen #StatePension created the swiftest, steepest 'Reforms' for the meanest State Pension in Europe *BY STEALTH*, for #50sWomen cohort.

As a result, #StatePension #50sWomen are "grotesquely disadvantaged" - Frank Field MP, Chair, Work & Pensions Select Committee (Report 2016).

#50sWomen had become "spreadsheet anomalies" - collateral damage - amidst the fallout from crash of the economy.

Uniquely, their well-being and finances have been swiftly and stealthily annihilated: #BackTo60 - the return of their earned dues, in full - is what #50sWomen demand.

Reasons for signing

  • Because I am 63 soon and feel working full time until the age of 66 is a little too much.
  • Worked my whole life since leaving school, never claimed any dole money, never claimed any form of allowances since leaving school, everything i own has been bought with money i earned while constantly paying into the state pension ..... so yes at age 60 + i deserve my pension because "I PAID INTO IT"
  • I have worked since age 16. I am now 62. I have never broken time from work for any reason (no children) I have never drawn dole, benefits or sick pay. I more than earned my right to retire at 60! I am tired. I need my rest. I deserve it.
