WOMEN are complaining they are not eligible for their state pension until they are the same age as men (Letters).
Did they complain in the past when, even though they live longer than men, they got their pension five years earlier?
BOB BANNISTER, Coventry. DON’T the women who are upset they won’t get their pension at 60 understand gender equality? Or do they want to be more equal? MICHAEL MAYCOCK,
Driffield, E. Yorks. I AM one of three chums who have socialised for 30 years. My friends received their state pension at 60, but I have to wait until I am 67. Where is the fairness in that?
I’ve worked since the age of 15 and feel I’ve been betrayed, with the Government breaking its side of the contract.
This has made me so cynical that I am fully expecting the goalposts to be moved again so that my 24-year-old son will not receive a pension unless he pays for it himself.
Women like me are simply the first part of the experiment of phasing out the state pension. PAMELA STEWART, Okehampton, Devon.
