Baby-Boomer Retirement Crisis Looms
Baby-Boomer Retirement Crisis Looms
The London Institute of Banking & Finance and Seven Investment Management (7IM)
5 Jun 2018 United Kingdom Advisers, Longevity, Long-term Care, Pensioners & Retirement, Savings
The London Institute of Banking & Finance and Seven Investment Management (7IM) have published joint research which examines how longevity and a decade of historically low interest rates are impacting the over-50s generation. The report argues that a cautious approach to investment means that many older Britons do not have the savings in place to retire comfortably, are under-prepared for the financial challenges they may face in later life and are unrealistic about how long their savings will last.

DH Green Paper: Shaping the Future of Care Together
DH Green Paper: Shaping the Future of Care Together
Department of Health (DH)
14 Jul 2009 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement, Long-term Care
The Department of Health has published a Green Paper entitled "Shaping the Future of Care Together" which sets out a vision for a new care and support system. One proposal is for a "compulsory care scheme" which would mean that middle-class pensioners who have saved and paid taxes all their lives could still be forced to sell their home to fund old age care. Those who do not pay a lump sum could defer their state pension to meet the costs.

Ageing and Mortality in the UK - National Statistician's annual article on the population
Ageing and Mortality in the UK
National Statistics
9 Dec 2008 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement, Long-term Care
According to the latest data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the population of the UK is growing at the fastest rate since the 1960s, increasing on average by 0.5% each year. The fastest growing age group is those aged 85 years and older, who now represent just over 2% of the population, compared to just over 1% in 1982. In 2007, continued increase in the population over state pension age meant for the first time this sub-group of the population exceeded the number aged under 16. Further improvements in survival mean both the continued growth of the older population and the likely continued ageing of the population as a whole.
