Payroll: need to know (Latest version)

Julie Delve and Karen Glynn, members of Backto60, which is a group that campaigns about state pension age changes for women born in the 1950s, have seen their permission to appeal denied by the Supreme Court.

The Court of Appeal handed down a judgement back in September 2020, in which Master of the Rolls Sir Terence Etherton, Lord Justice Underhill and Lady Justice Rose all dismissed the claims that were put forward of age discrimination, sex discrimination and lack of notice. This was what Delve and Glynn were seeking permission to appeal but the Supreme Court responded, stating that the group had failed to bring the claim within the limited time periods, and subsequently, was dismissed.

The Financial Times reported that the Supreme Court has released a statement, to say:

“The usual rule for judicial review proceedings is that the claim must be brought promptly and in any event within three months from when the grounds of challenge first arose (under rule 54.5 of the Civil Procedure Rules).

The panel agreed with both the Divisional Court and the Court of Appeal that the delay in bringing the claim meant it was out of time and had to fail, and accordingly the appeal could not succeed.”

Backto60 campaigns against the inequality and unfair treatment of women who were born in the 1950s, who saw changes to their state pension age during the process of pension age equalisation. Campaigners for the group want the Government to restore the pension age of any of the women who have been affected back to 60.
