Recent state pension changes have caused outrage among some.

There have been women protesting all over the country, including last weekend in Skipton, reported by the Craven Herald.

Fifty members of Women Against State Pension Inequality group demonstrated the rise in women’s state pension age.

They believe the way in which women’s pension age has been slowly rising to reach equality with men’s is unfair.

Many have complained that there has been little notification about the change in the rules.

Women and supporters of their movement have also been tweeting using the hashtag Backto60 on Twitter.

One wrote recently: “If a private company changed the terms of a contract 3 years in without notification they’d be sued!”

Another said: “Let’s hope after Judicial Review Govt is forced to return our missing state pensions. I’ve lost 3.5 yrs so far.

“It’s a big hole in our finances and one we couldn’t have planned for. Moving the goalposts at the end of working life is unacceptable.”

There have been claims that the current implementation of equalisation of state pension age could cause “poverty, homelessness and financial hardship among the affected women”. 

The UN committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women expressed its concern regarding the increase in the state pension age for women from 60 to 66.

Women who were born in the 50s are the most likely to have been negatively affected by the changes.

When do I qualify for state pension?

If you were born from 6 April 1953 to 5 May 1953 you will reach state pension age on 6 July 2016. The rest is as follows:

6 May 1953 – 5 June 1953 – 6 November 2016

6 June 1953 – 5 July 1953 – 6 March 2017

6 July 1953 – 5 August 1953 – 6 July 2017

6 August 1953 – 5 September 1953 – 6 November 2017

6 September 1953 – 5 October 1953 – 6 March 2018

6 October 1953 – 5 November 1953 – 6 July 2018

6 November 1953 – 5 December 1953 – 6 November 2018

From this point onwards men and women’s state pension age was equal, and when they can claim the state pension is as follows:
