Recent and future patterns of work around state pension age

You can download the event slides below: 


How long are people's working lives? Are they getting longer or - since the pandemic - shorter? What will the working lives be like for future generations approaching state pension age? And what happens for those approaching state pension age who are not able to work? These are some of the questions we look to answer at this event which comes at the end of a large 2-year programme of work from the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the Centre for Ageing Better. We draw on new work on understanding changes levels - and patterns of - employment for people in their 50s and 60s, and new analysis on how household incomes have been affected by the increase in the state pension age from 65 to 66.

Speakers at this event will be:

  • Emily Andrews, Deputy Director for Work, Centre for Ageing Better
  • Jonathan Cribb, Associate Director at IFS
  • Christopher Brooks, Head of Policy, Age UK

The event will be hosted by Carl Emmerson, Deputy Director at IFS.

Short talks from the two speakers will be followed by an opportunity for Q&A from the online audience.
