The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
Please tell me why you are refusing to pay women born between 1/1/1950-31/12/1959 the pensions that they paid to receive at age 60.
Please tell me why you and your employers,are continually telling the public that no 1950's born woman is waiting for more than 18 extra months for her pension,when in fact we are waiting up to 6 extra years.
Please tell me why,as insurers,you did not write to each contributor,to inform them that they would not receive their pension at age 60.
Insurance contributions, as paid by ourselves, and our employers, should be refunded to each of us,with interest, as you have failed to provide the product we paid for. Please explain why we have not been offered our money back.

Yours faithfully,

Janette Crawford

'A confidential letter seen by this website shows the Parliamentary Ombudsman, Sir Robert Behrens, has managed to both exonerate and damn the Department for Work and Pensions for its handling of the administration of the rise in the pension age for millions of women born in the 1950s and 1960s.'
