The wealth of people who remain employed is significantly greater than that of those not employed, even after adjusting for different education, gender and family type. The detrimental impact on savings of not working beyond their early 60s is shown in the small decline in financial assets of such people.Availability: (1)

Ageing and disadvantage : current research and policy environment /

by KPMG.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. KPMG and the Brotherhood of St Laurence 2007Description: 48 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 45Summary: The changing age profile of Australia is caused by both a decrease in fertility and an increase in life expectancy. Life expectancy for a man aged 65 in 1964 was 77, by 2004 life expectancy had increased to 83 years. For women, average life expectancy at 65 has increased from 81 to 86 years. Increased life expectancy means that people retiring now and in the future will have a longer and more active period of retirement than previous generations. Policy for the future is generally made by looking at the past, but it is now clear that the priorities and needs of the future population will be different from the past, and research is needed to understand the requirements for future policy. The life history, expectations and needs of older people into the future may not be the same as the current generations of older people.Availability: (1)

Department of Work and Pensions research.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 144-145 Includes AppendicesSummary: Research published today examines what aspirations people of all ages hold for their later life, what they are currently doing to prepare, and what enablers and barriers there are to achieving their aspirations. This study focuses on many of the social aspects of preparing for later life and specifically looks at what plans people are making for later life in their earlier years; what hopes or ambitions may motivate people as they approach later life; and, whether later life is viewed as an opportunity to do things people were unable to do in their earlier years or as a time to relax and do less.Availability: (1)

Closing the deficit : how much can later retirement help? /

by Burtless, Gary (ed.) | Aaron, Henry J. (ed.).

Publisher: Washington, DC Brookings Institution Press 2013Notes: Includes indexSummary: Who chooses to delay retirement? Have older workers delayed their departure from career jobs? How will working longer affect the outlook for the federal budget? ; For the past two decades Americans over age 60 have increasingly delayed their withdrawal from the workforce, a reversal of a century-old trend toward early retirement. For instance, from 1991 to 2010 the employment rate increased by more than half among 68-year-old men and by about two-thirds among women of the same age. ; Using data from the Current Population Survey, Working Our Way out of the Deficit explores the historical trajectory of retirement and the labor force participation rate of older men and women. Brookings economists Henry Aaron and Gary Burtless join with renowned colleagues to examine the impact of extended employment against the backdrop of the federal deficit problem. They posit that working longer could help reduce the soaring costs of entitlement programs including Social Security and Medicare. ; Aaron and Burtless have also developed new evidence on the role of career jobs. This evidence suggests that lengthening the careers of older workers who have held their jobs for a decade or more significantly contributes to the trend toward later retirement. ; As the nation faces a prolonged jobs gap, Working Our Way out of the Deficit provides an important work on a crucial segment of the employment market and guides us toward a path for future recovery.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Coming of age /

by Bazalgette, Louise | DEMOS | Holden, John | Tew, Philip.

Publisher: London, U.K. DEMOS 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2011 Bibliography pp. 187-203Summary: Britain's ageing population is often described as a demographic time-bomb. As a society we often view ageing as a 'problem' which must be 'managed' - how to cope with the pressure on national health services of growing numbers of older people, the cost of sustaining them with pensions and social care, and the effect on families and housing needs. But ageing is not a policy problem to be solved. Instead it is a normal part of life, which varies according to personal characteristics, experience and outlook, and for many people growing older can be a very positive experience. Drawing on the Mass Observation project, one of the longest-running longitudinal life-writing projects anywhere in the world, Coming of Age grounds public policy in people's real, lived experiences of ageing.Availability: (1)
