Some of you may be aware of women affected by the raising of the state pension age, originally planned to be an equalisation with men [fair] but then amended. Many had no notification of the change and therefore hadn't made provision.

Please consider signing the Waspi petition. If they get away with this younger people could be similarly affected with rise after rise in pension age. Thanks.

Just to add - your National Insurance contributions are paying the state pension of currently retired people. While your contributions will give you your entitlement, they are not a personal savings pot, which is a common misconception.

Why is this a feminist issue ? The pension age has been equalised for men and for women.

They are raising it even more for both men and women. How is that a feminist issue ?
