To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to introduce transitional state pension arrangements for women born in the 1950s who are adversely affected by the change of the state pension age introduced in (1) the Pensions Act 1995, and (2) the Pensions Act 2011.
This matter has been comprehensively debated on many occasions in Parliament. The Government will not be making changes to its policy on State Pension age for women born in the 1950s.
The Government has already introduced transitional arrangements, costing £1.1 billion. This concession reduced the proposed increase in State Pension age for over 450,000 men and women, and means that no woman will see her pension age change by more than 18 months, relative to the original 1995 Act timetable.
The Government will not be making any further concessions in addition to those arrangements already made for women affected by the acceleration of increases in State Pension age.
