Increase State Pensions to £416.80 per week & lower Retirement Age to 60 for All

Petition Details

British State Pensions are far too low. The Government must increase the basic state pension to £21,673.60 a year (£416.80 pw) and extend this to everyone aged 60 or over. This should lift thousands out of poverty, give our elderly folk the power to survive and help grow the real economy, bottom up.

Additional Information

£416.80 pw is the National Min Wage from April 2023

A State Pension Age of 60 for all, reflects current trends in life expectancy which are downward and that health deteriorates long before people are able to claim state pension currently

This level of investment could be easily paid for by using more of our GNP, inline with EU neighbours and halting tax avoidance

Today's young are tomorrow's old, protecting pensions, is defending the future of all and investing directly into the real economy
