Who’s re­tir­ing?

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Real Life -

✿ The cur­rent re­tire­ment age for women is 65 years, ris­ing to 66 years in 2020 and 67 in 2028. The lat­est fig­ures from the Depart­ment for Work and Pen­sions (DWP) show that women are work­ing longer, typ­i­cally re­tir­ing just be­fore they are 64 years old (in 1998, women re­tired on av­er­age at

60.6 years). The num­ber of women work­ing past the age of 65 years has also tre­bled in num­ber.

✿ Women aged 55-59 have also seen a growth in em­ploy­ment rate of

18.2%, from 52.5% in

1998 to 70.7% in 2018.
