Judges reject claim
Pensions campaign women lose court appeal
Women have campaigned against the change
Two women calling on the Department for Work and Pensions to compensation those who lost out because of the change in the state pension age have lost their Court of Appeal challenge.
Julie Delve, 62, and Karen Glynn, 63, brought a challenge over the changes after losing a landmark High Court battle last year.
Campaign groups associated with the court case represent almost four million women born in the 1950s who were affected by the government decision to increase the state pension age from 60 to 66.
But the appeal was unanimously dismissed today by three judges who said introducing the same state pension age for men and women did not amount to unlawful discrimination.
The judges also dismissed claims that advertising of the changes was inadequate – despite women saying they were not told and in some cases left destitute.
