Maladministration Update Letters – Mar 2020


The Department of Work and Pension are currently not accepting any new complaints of Maladministration regarding the increase of the State Pension age for women born in the 1950s.  This is because of a Judicial Review undertaken by another campaign group.  We will issue an update when further information is received.

Meanwhile you can read about the progress of the complaints which are being investigated by the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman here: Complaints of Maladministration – WASPI – Women Against State Pension Inequality

Women who have made complaints of Maladministration to the DWP, and whose complaints have got as far as the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman (PHSO), are now receiving update letters.

In it the PHSO confirms that they are now proceeding to Stage 1 of their investigation of six sample complaints.  This will come as a relief to those who have had their cases on hold now for many months.

These investigations will be confidential and there will be no further information available at this stage.
