The leader of ’63 is the new 60’, which campaigns for women to receive their pension age, explained her age of entitlement was constantly changed by the Government. Ms Robinson claimed to have received only one letter from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) IN 2012 telling her she won’t receive her pension until 65. But in the years before that, the age continued to increase.

The retirement age for women rose to 65 to bring it into line with men and will go up to 66 by 2020, and 67 by 2028.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Ms Robinson said: “It was 2014 when I thought I was going to be getting my state pension. I realised I wasn’t at 60.

“A lot of things had happened because I bought a business when I was 52 and mortgage broker at the time said you might be one of those women who will be caught up in the pension changes.

“That was the first I ever heard of it, a mortgage broker in 2006.
