Age needs one voice. Now it has:
Age UK is the new force combining Age Concern England and
Help the Aged in England.
The Pensions Bill proposed to equalise men's and women's state pension age at 65 in November 2018, and then raise it to 66 by April 2020. This was 6 years earlier than planned, and we thought this didn't leave those affected with enough time to plan for their financial futures.
After months of campaigning from Age UK, the Government amended this Bill and it is now law.
All of us at Age UK would like to thank the thousands of women who have helped our campaign.
If you were born before 6 April 1950 and 5 April 1960, download this guide to find out when you'll receive your state pension.
During the campaign, Age UK placed posters around Westminster and St James Park in London, where politicians and central government officials are based. [Photo credit: copyright Georgie Scott/Age UK]
