Judicial Review on Women’s State Pension Age

On 30th November 2018, a campaign group called Backto60 won the right to a Judicial Review of the Government’s handling of a rise in their state pension age from 60 to 65.

The group argue that women born in the 1950s have been disadvantaged by the increase of their state pension age from 60 to 65.

The DWP has resisted calls to compensate for the change and dispute the call for the Judicial Review.
