Thousands of Women Were Underpaid the State Pension

In the News

There is about £3 billion owed to them so there should be a nice unexpected windfall for those who were underpaid

Hopefully they will get what they’re owed soon and can do something decent with it.

Yes R , some payments are going back to 1992 , so with interest these amounts should be quite substantial

That's the retirement age getting jacked up again to cover the backdated payments 😞

Yes I agree it’s likely to go up as we live longer. Ten years ago, women could claim their state pension at 60 while men qualified at 65, but changes in recent years have brought both qualifying ages in line, and phased in increases for both sexes.
