Saga comments on the Cridland review of state pension age

Commenting on the Cridland review of the state pension age, Paul Green, Director of Communications at Saga, said:

"It's good news that people are living longer and more fulfilling lives, but longer life also has implications for public services and for taxpayers.

 

"Changes to the state pension changes need to be driven by proper planning and not short term financial fixes. That’s why it is encouraging that John Cridland has kicked off this important debate with some excellent insight into the changing lives of an aging Britain.

 

"We are particularly pleased to see the emphasis ensuring that any changes to the state pension age are communicated effectively. The government must learn from the mistakes of the past and ensure that, whatever changes it decides to make, people have the time to plan their retirement properly."
