The research draws together the latest information on current patterns of work and retirement in the UK. It describes the Government’s policy agenda to extend working lives and looks at the lessons the UK can learn from international experience. Using the PPI’s modelling capability, the research also considers how much longer individuals may need to work beyond State Pension Age if they wish to meet target levels of retirement income solely through state and private pension income.
