Funding the Future Life: The implications of a longer life
Funding the Future Life
Pensions Policy Institute (PPI)
20 Nov 2018 United Kingdom Annuities and Income Drawdown, Automatic Enrolment, Longevity, Part-time, Self-employed and Contract Workers, Pensioners & Retirement, Savings, State Pensions, Technology & Systems
The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) has published a report entitled "Funding the Future Life", looking at how individuals might fund a long and healthy life. In the report, which is the second in its "The Future Life; the implications of a longer life" series, the PPI argues that greater flexibility is needed in the retirement landscape to reflect the move from a traditional three-stage life to a multi-stage life, as evidenced by its finding that 37% of 18-39 year olds would like to work part-time when they transition to retirement. It recommends four potential measures that could be taken by stakeholders including Government and providers to address socio-economic inequalities around living long and healthy lives, such as providing financial products that both facilitate saving for retirement and allow for withdrawals to be made to help with more immediate financial goals such as buying a house, starting a business or retraining.

Teachers Working Longer Review: final report
Teachers Working Longer Review: final report
Teachers Working Longer Review Steering Group
Nov 2018 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement, State Pensions
The Teachers Working Longer Review Steering Group, which was commissioned to review the possible health and deployment implications of teachers working longer as a result of the increase in normal pension age (NPA) in the Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS) and the link between the NPA and state pension age (SPA), has published its final report. The report focuses on the Group's findings in relation to the impact of working longer in terms of teachers' physical and mental well-being, and employment practices which could support teachers working longer. Amongst its conclusions, the Group recommends that steps be taken to educate and raise knowledge about the TPS, its flexibilities and its ill-health provisions. The Group acknowledges that further evidence still needs to be gathered about the appropriateness of the continued link between the SPA and NPA, as this is not an issue dealt with in detail by the report.

  • Should pension schemes begin trialling a 'mid-life MOT' for members?; and
