This is a campaign group that fights the injustice wrought on women born in the 1950s regarding the changes to their state pension age, with the aim to achieve fair transitional State pension arrangements.
Your fee for membership of Women Against State Pension Inequality is for a full 12 months and will contribute to the fighting fund, both campaigning and legal. Members have representatives on a Members committee, who have elected two Member Representative Board Directors.
Having raised £100,000 through Crowdjustice in under three weeks, in 2016, Women Against State Pension Inequality sought legal advice on potential challenges to the Government. Currently 1000s of women are reaching the Ombudsman stage of complaints against the DWP supported by Counsel. While there are delays in two organisations - Independent Case Examiner and Parliamentary Ombudsman- the campaign is not retaining counsel, but aims to give instructions again when sufficient cases are at Ombudsman stage. We are challenging the delays. As we proceed with the legal challenge on behalf of the WASPI Campaign, the information we collect from you will be used for that purpose. Former Directors left and then disagreed with the new appointments made - we have received a suggestion of arbitration from them and are proceeding with that as the best way of resolving the matter quickly, so it is not a distraction from the campaign.
This Membership scheme is an important step in our determination to challenge the changes to State Pensions unfairly borne by this generation of women.
As a 'waspi' woman, an individual supporter, or a supportive organisation.
