US Projected Retirement Age Rises

US workers' projected retirement age has risen over the past 15 years, with more than a third of people today saying they will retire after age 65, compared with 12% in 1995, according to a poll from Gallup. The research marks the first time Gallup has recorded more people saying they will retire after age 65 than before that age.

‘It seems that we are in tune with the US on this one. The UK Government and many of the workforce wants to let people work for later on in their lives. This makes real sense – all that knowledge is passed on and it’s a fact that working keeps people healthier both mentally and physically and gives them a sense of being part of the community and a feeling that they are contributing to society. Roll on the day when there is no retirement age at all, but merely not work ‘til you drop, but choose when to stop!’ Sarah Johnson, Divisional Director, Dylan* London.
