Extending Working Lives

Populations across the developed world are ageing, and an early retirement culture and rising life expectancy is increasing concerns about poverty in old age, skills shortages and subsequent fiscal imbalances. Pension reforms and extending working life policies are becoming priorities for governments, but there is limited understanding of the potential consequences of working later in life and associated health risks. This project will examine these health risks and benefits. It will provide insight into how better to help people enjoy longer and healthier working lives that are resilient to the pressures of highly competitive labour markets. The findings will enable the project team to contribute towards evidence based policymaking at a national and international level.
