Ros is quoted in the Daily Telegraph calling on the Government to accelerate payments to women who have been short-changed in their State Pensions – living on thousands of pounds less than they should.
Ros is quoted in a Financial Times article explaining the need for flexibility is state pension starting ages, to reflect the significant differences in healthy life expectancy across the UK. Women’s healthy life expectancy is only to around age 50 in deprived areas, while it’s around 70 in the better off areas. Men also have large differences, so how is it fair to expect them to keep working later?
Ros is quoted by The Actuary Magazine, commenting on the large and widening gap in healthy life expectancy between the richest and poorest areas of the UK. Not everyone can be expected to work longer just because average national life expectancy has increased. ( link to pdf )
