Thank you so much for supporting, speaking up for us 50s women. I am already being swindled out of around £30k by my ex husband, on land we owned in a SIPP, then there's the swindling out of another £36K+ by the government. I am no longer looking at a secure future/retirement, and this is stressing me out. Thanks so much.
I am nearly 63.I did plan to get my pension at 60. This situation is so wrong.The government still does not treat Women as important,yes we have the vote,but now it's time to take control of our lives.It is taking ages to get a fair wage for women, the government will say things can not be changed overnight,but my goodness they were quick to get us in line with mens pensions. Enough is Enough.Just put women's pensions back to 60. Then let the wheels turn slowly to make our pensions the same as men,. as they do for the rest of women's rights
My husband will have retired 5yesrs by the time I retire ,we were looking forward to a happy retirement together ,now he's stuck at home on his own ,while I still have to work till I'm 66 !!! Think the government are hoping most of us will be dead by then ,save them paying out !!!
Keep up the good work. Am glad you're fighting for us who are still working. Like many others I found out in 2014, 4 years before I expected to start receiving my state pension that I would't for 10 years. How can they expect us to be able to earn sufficient money to support ourselves till we're 66 when on minimum wage? We've not all been fortunate enough to be in "good" high earning jobs as we get older, especially those who have come out of the jobs market for health matters or to look after family etc . I wonder how many Ministers' or top Civil servants' mums or sisters are in our position? Daylight Robbery!
