Ros spoke at UJC in London, highlighting the effects of the pensions crisis and how we can solve it.
After the Default Retirement Age is abolished, workers and employers have a whole new landscape and Ros commissioned the Age Employment Network to produce two independent Guides – one for Employers and one for Employees, published by Saga, giving information and examples of managing life without a default retirement age.
Ros chaired the inaugural Saga Thought Leadership Seminar on ‘Rethinking Retirement’ with Pensions Minister Steve Webb giving the keynote speech. This is a report of the Seminar and links to the Guides for Employers and Employees to help manage working life without a default retirement age.
Ros gave a keynote presentation at the Pensions Excellence conference in London on overcoming the pensions crisis and how to avoid ending up with our ageing population falling into poverty.
Ros gave a keynote presentation and the Pensions Management Institute’s Spring Conference in London, explaining that living longer is great news, but we need to rethink our lives and take advantage of being healthier and capable of working longer.
Ros was interviewed by Motley Fool’s excellent David Kuo on his Money Talk programme, discussing what has gone wrong with state pensions in the UK. Here is a transcript and you can click onto a podcast and listen to the interview from there.
