This report compares the characteristics and retirement income risks faced by Generation X to those of Baby Boomers and Millennials. In order to understand how work and retirement are changing for Generation X, this report compares the risks they face in later life to those facing Baby Boomers and Millennials, and tracks how the cumulative effect of different savings behaviours and changes to policy, pensions and employment are affecting risk across the generations. Key drivers of retirement risk are identified, and the report concludes each section with implications for policy interventions which could mitigate risks for Generation X and retirees of the future.
