24/02/2014 Raising State Pension Ages - We Have to Change Work First! George Osborne's announcement of further changes to the state pension age (SPA) confirms what we already assumed. By the mid 2030s SPA will be 68. Today's teenagers will wait until 70 for their pensions - who knows, maybe later? But politicians are increasingly concerned not just about getting us to postpone retirement but to live more healthily as we age so that we can continue working up to pensionable age. Age, work and health are on the agenda like never before.
By the year 2020, almost half the UK’s working population will be over the age of 45. Exertus aims to give all employers regardless of size or location, the opportunity to attract and harness more mature workers with the wisdom, work ethic and flexibility that comes with age.
