House of Commons Library research reveals the true cost of last week’s pension reforms to the women in the Rother Valley constituency who are set to lose out.
700 local women born in 1952 and 1953 will not be eligible for the single tier pension since they are due to retire in 2017, before the state pension reforms come into effect. Men born during the same period, however, will qualify.
The news comes after the Government claimed that "we have to be absolutely transparent [about who will lose]” yet failed to make clear the full consequences of the planned reforms.
The unravelling of this latest announcement on pensions is the second time this Government has been caught trying to hide the full impact of its changes for pensioners following the Granny Tax.
