- 2008 Retired Members' Conference
- 19 June 2008
This Conference welcomes the reduction in qualifying years for a full National Insurance Pension to 30 years from April 20th 2010.
Conference notes with concern however that the Government has refused to phase in the change and this will result in individuals being significantly disadvantaged. It will also cause unfairness and resentment among those women who reach 60 in March 2010 with less than 39 years contributions and will lose out on a full state pension by a few weeks or even a day. Conference calls upon the National Retired Members’ Committee and the National Executive Council to persuade the Government to address the anomaly.
