The report examines what ‘financial resilience’ actually means for retirees when they have different social networks, finances and health, and what makes older people ‘well placed’ to cope with the challenges and decisions they face throughout retirement.

According to a report by Age UK, a rise in average life expectancy has driven a similar rise in the state pension age with it now set to reach 67 by 2028 for both men and women. As 45% of pension age couples and 71% of single pensioners receive at least half their income from state pensions, the report takes an in-depth look at the people who are most likely to lose out from the higher state pension age, for instance construction workers and carers.

A report by Age UK has revealed that a significant number of pensioners will run out of money when reforms allowing them to withdraw cash from their pensions come into force in April, unless the Government puts stronger safeguards in place. The report found that if an individual with a pension pot of £29,000 was to withdraw £3,000 a year from the age of 65, assuming returns on the remaining savings were 3%, they would run out of money by the age of 75.

12 Feb 2014 United Kingdom State Pensions, Pension Reform, Equality
According to research by Age UK, 8 out of 10 older people (79%) oppose the Government's introduction of a single-tier state pension that will leave 30,000 women reaching State Pension Age between 2016-2020 with a lower pension than expected. Of those surveyed, 57% believe that the new system - which will have no allowances for those who are married, bereaved or divorced - is unfair and that people should be able to claim on their partner's contribution record if their own falls short of giving them a full State Pension.
