Rejected petition Unfair increase in women's pension age
About half a million women will be affected by the increase in the state pension age, the accelerated timetable means we have less time to plan for our retirement.
Is it even legal? Would a private insurance company be able to change the goalposts like this at such short notice?
The government should do the right thing by those women who it is going to hit hardest (53 / 54 age group) and change the bill.
