Sixties generation is heading for conventional old age
Sixties generation is heading for conventional old age
Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC)
9 Oct 2008 United Kingdom Savings, Pensioners & Retirement
Academic research supported by the Economic and Social Research Council and Arts and Humanities Research Council shows that most members of the baby boom generation - often regarded as the first teenagers of a more affluent consumer society - have modest ideas for their retirement. While some plan substantial projects, particularly in relation to travel or using second homes, most people's ideas for spending time after retirement retain a traditional pattern - watching television and films, playing records or going for long walks.

Not so brief lives: The danger of underestimating how long we will live
Dangers of underestimating length of retirement
Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC)
Jun 2004 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement
According to this study, people retiring in the next decade or so will live considerably healthier, more active and longer lives than their predecessors. However, many are drastically underestimating the chances of their retirement lasting at least 10 years and hence may not be saving enough.

Gender, Employment and Pension Acquisition: Trends and International Comparisons
New evidence of women's pension disadvantage
Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC)
Jul 2003 United Kingdom Equality
The central conclusion of this research is that the government's current policy of allowing state pensions to decline, while increasing reliance on occupational and other private pensions, will perpetuate the disadvantage that women face in providing adequately for their retirement. Despite women's increased participation in employment, most cannot rely on private pensions to provide an adequate personal income in later life. Only improved state pensions with protection of caring periods, or alternatively a universal citizen's pension, can ensure that women's unpaid family care work does not lead to poverty and dependency in later life.

Inequalities in Quality of Life in Early Old Age
Measures of the quality of life in older people
Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC)
Nov 2002 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement
In this research, around 300 people aged 65 to 75 were asked about their quality of life. Amongst the findings there was little difference in the quality of life of those who retired early, those who retired at the state pension age and those who retired later than the state pensionable age. However, there was a difference in those who felt forced and those who had a choice in their retirement.
