Six MORE elderly women are underpaid total of £22k in state pension

Paid £6k: Glenis Madden had previously asked the DWP to check her state pension – but was told it was CORRECT just a few months ago

An untold number of elderly women could have lost out on thousands of pounds in state pension due to a devastating blunder by the Government.

In the past few weeks, This is Money has discovered a further six women were underpaid state pension totalling around £22,000 over many years.

That is on top of two women who got backpayments totalling £14,000 last month as a result of our investigation.

We are also aware of many other retired women pursuing enquiries with the Government independently.

The Department for Work and Agen Baccarat online Pensions has refused to confirm whether a full, systematic review is under way to find all women who are being underpaid, but remain in the dark that they could be owed significant sums.

It is still unclear how errors were made in so many cases, and how they remained undetected for so long.

The Government has previously told us it is exploring how it could identify if there are other, similar cases.

In a statement to This is Money, the DWP says: ‘If any further cases are identified, their state pension award will be reviewed and any arrears paid.’

But our new cases reveal a scandalous level of incompetence by the DWP when people approach it for help on their own.
