WASPI WOMEN WIN LANDMARK RULING
Today, following the findings of the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman which has concluded that the Government was too slow to inform women about the rise in state pension age, every single WASPI - Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaign, woman should feel vindicated.
This finding is hugely significant for the women affected after years of being ignored and dismissed by the UK Government. Now the UK Government needs to do the decent thing and ensure that women born in the 1950s are finally and fully compensated for their lost pension years. In addition, the Government should apologise to all the women affected for the unnecessary hardship and distress they have endured as a result of these failings. Continued failure by the UK Government to act in view of this ruling would be heap yet more injustice and hardship on all the women who have been so badly let down and so very poorly served by this clear case of maladministration within the DWP.
