THE UK STATE PENSION. The State Pension Reformation issues
The site will remain as completely independent as possible from any one group with opportunity
to take on today’s problems.
The number of UK pensioners is around 12.5 million. There are around 30 odd million workers
in the UK that will become pensioners.
42 MILLION PEOPLE WORKING TOGETHER AS ONE UNIT IS A GOOD CHALLENGING NUMBER TO TAKE ON THE UK GOV’T PENSION ERRORS AND FAULTS!
This site is NOT a challenge to any established pension related group. The idea is to get 42 million people agreeing on correcting gov’t failures.
(e.g. 42 million people agreeing the frozen pension policy must end. The SPA should not be increased above 68 or reduced to 66 etc. etc. 42 million people stating
all pensioners information is directed at all pensioners and workers directly).
It’s all for our and future pensioners
secured pension as conceived by D. L George in the early 1900’s. if you want your secured pension then can we all work together?
1) A suggestion to create
a catalogue of pension reformation groups. Purely a list of groups that are actively working on reform of SP issues. Possibly a contact email address could be added. No details of activities other than main agenda item “expert” in. (i.e the list
is not an advertising board for other issues).
All groups have their own agenda and therefore not all groups will necessarily have the same ideas on individual SP issues. Each single issue would
therefore need tobe covered separately. (groups with Facebook accounts will carry on as usual).
2) the SP is an issue itself and needs to be taken as first priority. Next stage
to do that is to determine what is the SP. ( I am working on that one). Each group would ask its members to confirm agreement, by a date limited email address, to the group organiser. The organiser would collate numbers and send to a date limited email
address of an agreed recipient. Agreement not received by the email closure date, or after that date, would be assumed to be “not in agreement”.
e.g. Q1 QUESTIONNAIRE RE
A) the SP should NOT be part of the welfare state legislation definitions. It is an entitlement and a right and should be a standalone item. The wording would state,
as existing: “All persons are entitled to receive the SP on reaching SP age and have the required number of contributory years. ( As defined in this legislation), regardless of their country of residence. The number of contributory years cannot
be changed within 10 years of the enactment of the legislation of this SP Act.
(it would be necessary to twist a few arms perhaps to get all members to agree to the question by replying). As with
the current Pension Act there will be provisions that would similarly apply within the “State Pension Reformation Act”.
Questions following should be kept to minimum. SPA will be a blocking issue by the gov’t
so should not be used in with other main issues. However I would think there would be a big demand for a maximum age to be agreed on, perhaps 68 would be possible. (still think it should be on single main SPA issue only. The reformation of the
SPA will be a long and difficult battle and so small steps should be taken. Concentrate on the primary target, the SP basics, and then other single issues.
The SP must be converted to being just one rate only, within say 3 years
(?). The rate of the SP to be increased almost immediately to reduce other benefit claims and administrative costs.
Certainly a big demand must be that the NIS funds MUST be reinstated as a secured fund as now, (was), the format
to follow the original “assurance of a pension from retiring from work until death” as conceived by David Lloyd George.
Brians “parity Warrior” was based on the FP. But after a decade or so being manipulated by the gov’t there are a few additions to be added, such as 2). British Expat Shame! 3). British Government Shame! 4).
Recipients of the British State Pension Shame! 5). Failure of campaigning group Shame! 6) The Commonwealth Shame! 7). The State Pension Age Shame! 8).The legislation Shame! 9).The failures of the government by maladministration on all pension related
