Older People’s Poverty: Drivers and policy options

Older People's Poverty

What is the prevalence of poverty among older people in the UK, what are the drivers and what are the options for policymakers? 

To contribute to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s anti-poverty work, this report addresses several questions:

  • What is the prevalence of retirement income poverty in the UK?
  • Why does retirement income poverty exist?
  • What are the ‘gaps’ in state and private pension policy in the UK that cause it?
  • What interventions would eliminate retirement income poverty in the UK?

This report maps current and future retirement income poverty in the UK, analyses its causes and explores potential policy remedies.
