AMENDMENT TO STATE PENSION AGE

Thursday 13 October 2011

PAUL GREEN COMMENTS ON THE GOVERNMENTS CHANGES TO EQUALISATION OF WOMEN'S PENSION AGE

"The equalisation of the state pension age is the right thing to do, as is giving people time to prepare and plan for retirement.

We are pleased that the Government has listened to those who - like Saga's Dr Ros Altmann - spoke up for the unfairness faced by many women who were rightly angry that they would have little time to prepare for the change. The six month delay goes someway to put right this wrong and is a victory for fairness and common sense, our only regret is that this issue was not recognised and taken seriously sooner."
