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

  • 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"
  • l left school at 16years worked most of my life..had children..kept 2 jobs at once..l would now like to retire & still fit to do so...to ask anyone to work 50 years is ridiculous..my father died at 56..my sister died at 62 so theres not much hope that l will even get there..can l get a refund for my husband if l do?? At least it could help with funeral cost..in fact the Government should pay for everyone who dies before retirement as they have pocketed all of their contributions
  • This my support for all women who not only working but they also do the house work and feel it should be redused to 55 for women and 60 for man
