DIGNITY FOR OUR ELDERLY

14th November 2019

After decades of hard work, our oldest deserve respect. SNP MPs will:

👨‍🔧 Oppose the Tory’s current plan to increase the State Pension Age to 68 by 2038, and fight against ridiculous proposals to raise the State Pension Age to 75;

💵 Fight to reverse the cut to Pension Credit that means older couples in Scotland could be £7000 worse off per year;

👩‍💼 Support the establishment of an Independent Savings and Pension Commission, to ensure pensions and savings policies are fit for purpose and reflect the demographic needs of different parts of the UK;

🐝 Stand up for the WASPI women in Scotland who have been short-changed by the Tory Government due to the accelerated timetable for increases in the women’s State Pension Age;

📺 Support the urgent reversal of the decision to make pensioners pay and demand that the UK Government fully fund licences for over 75s.
