The New Social Contract: Aegon Retirement Readiness Survey 2018
Aegon Retirement Readiness Survey
AEGON
May 2018 WORLDWIDE Longevity, Pensioners & Retirement, Savings, Welfare Reform
Aegon has published its seventh annual Retirement Readiness Survey, in which it analyses how prepared individuals are for retirement and recommends a New Social Contract for retirement based upon its findings. The 2018 survey reveals that 49% of today's workers and retirees believe that future generations will be worse off in retirement than those who are retired today. It also highlights that there has been little improvement in retirement readiness among workers as measured by the Aegon Retirement Readiness Index (ARRI), which in 2018 was unchanged from 2017 at 5.9, and only slightly higher than the score of 5.2 recorded in 2012.

Care and State Pension Reform (CASPeR)
Mar 2018 United Kingdom State Pensions, Taxation, Welfare Reform
The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) has published a research report for the Care and State Pension Reform (CASPeR) project looking at the impact of changes to income tax and National Insurance contributions (NI) recommended to raise revenue to fund increased spending on long-term care for older people upon those over State Pension age (SPa). The report considers the number of individuals over SPa who have an income tax liability, the potential impact of raising income tax rates and reducing personal allowances upon those individuals, and the likely effect of changes to the NI system in relation to pensions.

A growing sandwich generation survives not thrives

Aviva
11 Dec 2008 United Kingdom Welfare Reform, Savings, Pensioners & Retirement
Norwich Union, part of Aviva, predicts that an increasing number of people will have to provide care for parents and children as the UK's demographic continues to change. Increasing life expectancy and falling birth rates over recent decades means there are more older people supported in retirement by fewer people of working age. Additionally, the trend of having children later in life, alongside historically high house prices and student debt, mean that children are also remaining financially dependent on their parents for longer than ever before.

World Economic Forum (WEF)
23 Sep 2008 WORLDWIDE Worldwide News, Welfare Reform, State Pensions, Scheme Issues & Trends, Pension Reform
The world is ageing at an unprecedented rate. This will undermine the financial sustainability of not only traditional pension systems, but also conventional healthcare systems. A new report from the World Economic Forum, in partnership with Mercer, argues that urgent action in many countries around the globe is required to meet these challenges. This report indicates that new forms of collaboration between key stakeholders - individuals, financial institutions, healthcare providers, employers and governments - will be critical to finance the ongoing well-being of current and future generations in a sustainable manner.
