The UK State Pension is not good enough – we need to end pensioner poverty with a Wellbeing Pension of £235 per week.

Wellbeing Pension Petition Message:

We call on the UK Pensions Minister to commit to ending pensioner poverty in the UK by:

• Raising the basic state pension (including pension credit) to match the Wellbeing Pension of £235.00 per week. The amount needed by pensioners to cover the basic cost of living.

• Reinstating the broken promise to maintain the triple-lock pension guarantee that was a cornerstone of the current Government’s manifesto.

• Compensating pensioners by backdating the triple-lock pensions rise and paying them the amount they should have received. The breaking of the triple lock will cost pensioners up to £487.00 per year, which is unacceptable in the face of the cost of living crises.
