It is not too late to join WASPI and get the help you may need to complain to the DWP about the lack of, or no notice of the drastic change to your SPA. The campaign is gathering momentum and support from all parties - the times they may be changing!!

Please look at the WASPI website www.waspi.co.uk and write to the DWP. The website is kept up to date and there is also a facebook page.

Check their web page currently they have a barrister working with them and they are asking for letters, see their template , to be sent then this helps with their legal case...
Discussed in parliament the other day...it's still on going...don't give up.
That's what the government is hoping.

WASPI is a group of ladies campaigning for us ladies affected by the change in State Pension age . They are fighting for transitional arrangements to be made due to the maladministration of informing us. Please look at the WASPI website www.waspi.co.uk to see what you can do to help. I have recently joined my local group and would urge all ladies affected to do the same if possible.

Thank you, Sd, will do. I was born at the very end of 1955 so am also directly affected by this.

Good morning. Am I correct I'm believing the female MP who managed to get this topic debated in Parliament recently is no longer to continue? I understand, (although the reason she is now unable to continue this line of debate is as yet, unknown to me), that it is unlikely another person will be found to 'fight our cause'. I was born in 1955, and therefore will not get a state pension until the beginning of 2021. What has been reached in the bid to pay all women in a similar situation compensation?

The campaign continues, please look at the WASPI website and write to the DWP. You may be able to join a local group. I was also born in 1955 and have been affected twice.
