Equal Pensions (2)

Back to all Motions

2015 National LGBT Conference
20 July 2015

Conference notes that some trans women remain cheated of arrears of State Pension due as a result of a European Court of Justice decision because the United Kingdom government, relying on domestic provisions on non-retrospection, refuses to backdate payment to date of transition.

Conference instructs the national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender committee to work with the national retired members’ committee, seeking the support of the national executive council as need be, to find ways to support trans women to be treated equally for pension purposes from their date of transition.
