Ros comments on the IFS study which suggests people born in the 1960s and 2006s are worse off than previous generations at that age. She points out that the IFS says these cohorts did have higher earnings in their early adult years but chose to spend rather than save their money. This means they may need to work longer to make up for longer lives and lower saving.
Ros comments on the news that the Government wants to accelerate the rise in state pension ages for younger generations. She explains that this is inevitable as life expectancy rises and that this is not a penalty on the young but an opportunity to embrace a whole new phase of life that previous generations could not have enjoyed, with part time work following a full time career.
