Rapid changes to the pension age affecting over 3.8 million retired women have left many facing financial hardship. I met with Debbie and Angela from the WASPI campaign team this month to follow up on Labour Conference meeting and discuss how we can push forwards their fight for fast and fair compensation. I was proud to stand on a Labour Manifesto that was committed to extending Pension Credit to support the vulnerable women affected by the Government’s chaotic approach to the state pension. WASPI women must be properly compensated for the coalition government’s failure to properly notify them of these changes.
