Where next for pensioner living standards?
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation has supported a two-year study into the living standards of future pensioners, carried out by researchers at the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS).
This round-up brings together the key findings from 11 reports.
- whether pensioners will continue to see a rise in living standards, as they have done in recent decades;
- how recent welfare reforms will affect people’s living standards in retirement, and;
- the role that other factors play, including inheritance and the fact that people are working longer.
