I'm not so sure they are keeping us all working longer and paying the young unemployment benefit. Makes not a lot of sense to me.

Hi

It makes perfect sense, we have simply not paid enough to cope with longer life expectancies.

It is totally unfair to burden our children and grandchildren with horrendous costs.

Other developed countries get far more pensions, but they have paid for them, we haven't.

Re: Women's Pensions Action

That's not the point, SF.
Lots of women were not informed about the age change, some who were didn't have time to make other arrangements .
Women earn less than men, have to bring up children, care for elderly relatives, yes, I know some men do too, but mostly women, some care for retired husbands too who may be unwell.
Some are affected by loss of heating allowances, bus passes and bedroom tax which are all influenced by State Pension Age.
I'm not getting into an argument about retirement age should be equal, in an equal world it would be fine.
I'm just passing on information to other women who may benefit from the link I posted.
End of!

Re: Women's Pensions Action

It is simply if you don't pay into a state pension then you should not take out.

You don't get a pension unless you pay in realspeed. I won't get one I'm just hoping there is enough benefit system still to help out or I'm not sure what will happen.

So we burden them with unemployment instead ?

Re: Women's Pensions Action

Claim disabilty benefits or get an apprenticeship, that's the Government's answer to women whose pensions are being paid 5+ years after expected!
If you read some of the personal stories of women on the WASPI website they're heartbreaking .

Re: Women's Pensions Action

It is terrible how they brought this out, same with all the benefit cuts. I feel very sorry for so many people but too many think it's ok to change it IMO

Hi

What unemployment?

It is the lowest for decades and when we do introduce Immigration Controls it will be even lower.

People will have to move for the jobs though, you go where the money is.

My family had to, only one of us still in Huddersfield where we grew up.
