Longer Working Lives

Share this page

The Committee for Employment & Social Security has been reviewing what changes may be needed to support people to work for longer.  We are expecting that in future there will be a higher proportion of older people in the population of Guernsey and Alderney. In addition, it has been already agreed that the State Pension Age will increase from 65, at a rate of 2 months per year, starting in 2020, to reach 70 by 2049.

It was recognised that there is a need to respond to these changes by finding out more about the barriers to work that people face and seeking to address these.

A Policy Letter on Longer Working Lives has been prepared, which is awaiting States Debate. The Policy Letter can be found here:

As part of the development of this work, a public consultation was undertaken in June-July 2017, the Draft Proposals consulted on and the Summary of Findings to that consultation are also available in the downloads section on this page.
