Pensions are not a benefit!

31st May 2017


Pensions are not a benefit. They are a contractual right. By denying the WASPI women their pension rights, the Tories have broken that contract.

Everyone must be able to enjoy their retirement. The women affected must therefore be given the opportunity to make suitable arrangements. But the Tories are obsessed with cutting – regardless of who it impacts – and having people work into their old age. This is unacceptable.

The SNP will oppose Tory austerity every step of the way to support our pensioners. That is why we back justice for the WASPI women and support a pensions triple lock to protect the income and wellbeing of our pensioners.
