UK: Transsexual people get equal State Pension rights

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — From the UK gov. public services newsroom:  Certain transsexual people can now apply for equal treatment rights for social security purposes. This could mean getting the State Pension paid early, or having some National Insurance contributions refunded.

The Gender Recognition Act 2004 gave transsexual people the right to be treated as their preferred gender. Transsexual people who were aged 60 before the Act came into force on 4 April 2005 can now apply for equal treatment rights for social security purposes.

This means you may be able to: (1) claim State Pension from an earlier date (2) have National Insurance contributions or periods from your 60th birthday refunded.
