Communication of the new state pension age


The Work and Pensions Committee, which I chair, recently published an interim report on the communication of the new state pension. We recommended in the report that the cohort of women born in the 1950s, who did not receive adequate notice of the increase in their state pension age, should be given the right to draw their pension early but at a reduced rate. We made this proposal in the context of severe government spending constraint, in the hope that it may ameliorate some of the worst effects of rapid and poorly-communicated rises to pension ages for many women affected.

I very much hope that this proposal will be seen by the Government as a bare minimum option, although I do believe that ministers should also be exploring other potential options. I am trying to get them to move swiftly on this matter and I am also seeking to gain a cross-party debate on the floor of the House of Commons, in which this proposal can be put to a vote. We expect to receive a response from the Government within the next month.
