A meeting for women who have been affected by the changes to the State Pension Law is being held in Thetford.

Women born in the 1950s are being invited to attend a meet-up with Women from Pension Action In Norfolk (PAIN) which is part of the national movement Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI).

Changes in 1995 and 2011 to the state pension age mean women born on or after April 6, 1951 can expect to retire up to six years later than they had originally planned.

On Saturday, August 12 from 3pm until 4pm, representatives from PAIN will be at the Sainsbury’s Cafe on the Forest Retail Park, for people to discuss their problems and get advice from and have a coffee with people in a similar situation.

For more information about the event contact Lynn Nicholls on 07759143247.
