WASPI Member Appeal

Women in North Wales are being invited to join forces with like-minded ladies fighting for a better pension deal.

WASPI, (Women Against State Pension Inequality) is a national campaign group fighting the injustice to women born on or after 6 April 1951 which has seriously affected changes to their state pension age.

The North Wales group, which boasts over 200 members, meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 7pm in Sainsburys café, Rhyl.

They are keen to spread the WASPI message across the region and would like to invite anyone who has been affected by the pension changes, to attend a meeting.

The North Wales branch was set up just over 12 months ago and its aim is to achieve fair transitional state pension arrangements for women born in the 1950’s.

WASPI nationally is continuing to make headlines with many MP’s now backing the campaign and members in North Wales are calling on the thousands of women affected to support their cause.

The new system is a very unfair and there are a lot of women out there who still do not realise that they will not be receiving a state pension at 60 years of age.

For those who are already 60 they face having to wait until they are 66 or 67 years of age.

Just recently, following another campaign, an on-line petition collected over 100,000 signatures and hopes are high that Parliament could be forced to debate the issue again.

For more information then please visit the WASPI website www.waspi.co.uk, follow us on Facebook/Twitter or contact the North Wales branch by emailing northwaleswaspi@btinternet.com.
