Women across the country are gearing up to demonstrate on budget day in their fight for a fairer deal on pensions.

WASPI (Women Against State Pension Inequality) groups throughout the UK have been meeting ahead of the March 8 spring budget and preparing to step up their campaign.

Trish McGregor, of Ancaster, pictured far right with the local group of WASPI, joined when she realised that her pension age had risen from 60 to 62 then 65-and-a-half, a move by the Government which she called ‘selfish and unjust’.

She said: “There are 2.6 million affected by the lack of notice of the 1995 and 2011 Pensions Acts.

“WASPI want women born in the 1950s to make their own complaints and help others to make theirs.”

The campaigners have issued a ‘Guide to DWP (Department of Works and Pensions) Complaints’ to ensure that complaints lodged cover all the necessary points, which they believe will help them get justice.
