Peter Hahn and Brian Wilkinson

As life expectancy increases so does the number of older people in our population – ONS data also tells us that one in every five people (18.2%) in 2017 were 65 or older and that’s projected to reach around one in every four people (24%) by 2037. So more of us will live longer and that means longer to enjoy retirement – which is good news, surely?
