The All-Party Parliamentary Group on State Pension Inequality for Women has submitted a formal representation to the Parliamentary Health and Service Ombudsman (PHSO).

The PHSO is currently in the second stage of its investigation into how the DWP communicated changes to the women’s state pension age. Stage one of the investigation concluded that the DWP had committed maladministration, a verdict that 1950s-born women had long argued was the case.

It is the hope of the APPG that this submission will inform the work of the Ombudsman in the second stage of its investigation, and further highlight the significant amount of hardship that 1950s-born women have faced as a result of this long-standing injustice.

The APPG would like to sincerely thank all parties who took part in this inquiry, and all of the individuals who submitted evidence.
