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.
