- More than 40% believe that a set retirement age encourages age discrimination and should be abolished.
- According to the Office of National Statistics, more and more women are working past their state retirement age of 60, due to inadequate pension provision.
- It is also argued that a continuing reduction in the real value of the State Pension and the shift away from defined benefit occupational pensions will serve to increase the retirement age.
