Here today, gone tomorrow: How today's retirement choices could affect financial resilience over the long term
Here today, gone tomorrow
International Longevity Centre (ILC-UK)
Mar 2015 United Kingdom Savings, Pension Reform, Pensioners & Retirement, Investment - General, Annuities and Income Drawdown
The International Longevity Centre (ILC-UK) has published a report, sponsored by Aviva, which examines what choices made at the point of retirement could mean for levels of retirement income over the next 30 years. The report finds that even if all those approaching retirement were to purchase annuities, 1.1 million people would not be able to secure an adequate retirement income without using non-pension assets or receiving benefits in addition to the State Pension. However, this figure rises to 1.4 million if all those with DC pensions were to spend their pension funds on items that do not generate a retirement income.

International Longevity Centre (ILC-UK)
Jul 2014 United Kingdom State Pensions, Pensioners & Retirement
The International Longevity Centre UK (ILC-UK) has launched a report which explores the impact of demographic change at both a micro and macro level. The report considers the economic impact of ageing and how much the Government might need to spend on an ageing population. It also incorporates a special focus on pensioner poverty and the current and likely future sources of pensioner income. The report finds that, although 1.6 million pensioners are experiencing relative low income, average levels of pensioner poverty have fallen substantially over the last 15 years.
