Almost half of the Welsh workforce says they won’t be able to afford to retire

by on November 7, 2017

Age Cymru, BITC Cymru and You Gov have worked together to place ageing in Wales under the spotlight.  The survey finds, perhaps unsurprisingly, increased concern about the need to work longer for financial reasons alongside worries about the health implications of doing so.  The survey found that 43% of respondents believe they will be working past state pension age and plan to continue working in their current job.

Relatedly, the Welsh Government are reminding employers that people have #nobestbeforedate and also highlighting that many over 50’s plan to keep on working into their sixties.


The aim of this campaign is to address myths about employing older workers.
