I not only had to wait an additional 3 years I get a lower pension for life than a man my age.
As men born in 1951 get the new higher pension but only women born after1953 will get the the new pension worth approx £30 a week more.

Being advised less than 12 months before retirement age did not give me sufficient time to replan for my retirement.
Where will they get the money? Try using the monies paid in by all the working women to this end.
If a private pension company made a decision to extend the date you could draw a private pension by 6 years, after paying in for 40+ Years there would be uproar and probably court cases brought to force them to pay.
Will we compensate these men who did lose out - they had on average 12 years less pension than women!

We have all had our state pension age moved since we started work. Mine is now age 67 and I was born in 1962, ( I am female). Where does the 'compensation' end? It was some of these women that wanted equality so why should men work longer, especially as they don't take time off to have children.
