State Pension scandal: Waspi women expect ‘maximum compensation’ after MPs’ report | Personal Finance | Finance

Last week they published a report strongly arguing for “top level” compensation.

Hilary Simpson, chair of Women Against State Pension Injustice (Waspi) 2018, said this confirms the injustice.

“We are delighted that the MPs’ report has come out so strongly in favour of the maximum compensation,” she said.

“They diligently sifted through mountains of evidence about the impact that the lack of notice had on women. They listened carefully as we gave our evidence and really seemed to understand our experience.”

The MPs concluded that not only has the maladministration impacted on women financially, it has also caused extraordinary emotional, physical and psychological distress, forcing women to endure a reduced quality of life.
