Date fixed for judgement on change in women’s pension age

WASPI protesters: they’ve been waiting for justice for a very long time.

Every WASPI woman should take note of this.

The Court of Appeal has announced that its judgement on whether the Department for Work and Pensions correctly handled the change of the women’s pension age will be handed down on September 15.

This change meant some women who would have been entitled to their pension when they were 60 have been forced to wait six years for their first payment.

The WASPI women – it stands for Women Against State Pension Inequality – say the handling of the change was wrong in that they were not given enough warning.

This meant they did not have an opportunity to change their financial arrangements to cope with the extra years without a pension.

Further information is available on Westminster Confidential, where David Hencke tells us:

The decision will be on the merits of whether the DWP handled the policy change properly not on the merits of the plight of the women.

If the judges decide that there were faults in the system the women will have won and be entitled to compensation. If they decide that the DWP acted properly within the law they will lose.

  1. Basic Income Babes to Grannies

    Admin BASIC INCOME babes to granny direct to Bank of England, not from government.

    The 1950s born ladies hopefully will get the justice of our full restitution compensation.

    This will not help the 1960s born ladies, now turning 60, with pension age 67, threatened with further rise to 70 going on 75, so early works pension age 65.

    The 1970s born men and women lost early works pension from 50 to 55 since 2010 (the other I Daniel Blakes).

    We are the most knackered older working class, falling out of work by the millions from age 50, men and women, due to ill health.

    Now we are amongst the high rise in redundancy of all ages, as furlough reduces and soon comes to an end, with least chance of a new job.

    PLEASE SIGN BASIC INCOME PETITION CLICK HERE to demand £372 per week per person from age 16 to 100 plus.

    Has the DWP, and their judiciary side kicks, ever acted fairly for the population or do they prefer acting for their paymasters and maybe some honour in the honour lists? I would be very surprised if they did cough up no matter how incompetent or unfair the DWP was. However the Con Government at this time is desperate to bankrupt this country by their ultra generosity with our tax payers money so maybe there might be a glimmer ……. but not holding breath.

    When they brought in the new pension age, I received a letter from them that I would get my pension at 62, and that was the last I heard from them, I only found out about the age going up to 67 by using a state pension checker. I’m now 63 🙁

    The court notice does not say what you claim. The two paragraphs you quote are written by David Hencke, not the courts. They describe how he thinks the judges will reach their decision. He has even changed the first paragraph because women complained that it didn’t include discrimination. Here is the actual court notice:

    Take notice that on TUESDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER, 2020 at 10.30, Judgment will be given in the following.
    From The Queen’s Bench Division
    (Administrative Court and Divisional Court)
    C1/2019/2914 The Queen on the application of Delve & Anr -v- The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.

    Covid-19 Protocol: This judgment will be handed down remotely by circulation to the parties or their representatives by email, release to BAILII and publication on the Courts and Tribunals Judiciary website. The date and time for hand-down will be deemed to be TUESDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER, 2020 at 10.30. A copy of the judgment in final form as handed down should be available on the Judiciary website ( or BAILII shortly thereafter but can otherwise be obtained on request by email to the Judicial Office ([email protected])
