For the first time in history, it seems we have more people over 50 than children under five.
With our extended and healthier life spans these days, it is clear that, economically, those of us who can, will need to work longer and so demand less on Government pensions.
The pressure on public pension funding, from a smaller working base of tax payers, will eventually lead to many changes such as deeper means testing, including greater scrutiny on our total assets.
With a set retirement age, we just don’t over-night, become non productive in the workspace.
This is a very complex matter, and your comments and ideas would be welcome…
