Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) is campaigning for fair transitional arrangements for women born in the 1950s who have had their pension aged moved for up to six years with little or no notice. The women and their families have Parliamentary cross party support nationally and Luton Borough Council has voted to support the WASPI campaign, recognising that many women born in the 1950s are experiencing financial hardship because of the lack of notice they were given about the change to their state pension age.
WASPI nationally are encouraging all women born in the 1950s who have been affected by this injustice to take action against the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) for maladministration.
The local WASPI group will be holding a meeting on Thursday March 22nd at 10am at the Luton Irish Forum, Kathleen Connolly House, 102 Hitchin Road, Luton LU2 0ES for all those who would like to know more about WASPI or who want help initiating their claim against the DWP. Please do come along and if you want more details then contact Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org
