Longer Working Lives

This consultation has now closed. The Committee is reviewing your responses before drafting a Policy Letter.

Longer Working Lives

Share this page

The population is ageing and we expect there to be a higher proportion of older people in the future. The State Pension Age will also increase from 65, at a rate of 2 months per year to reach 70 by 2049. (Please click here for more information).

The changing demographics will bring opportunities as well as challenges. We need to adapt; to plan for a future in which more of our workforce will be made up of older people; and to make sure that we begin to address the barriers faced by people who wish or need to continue working as they approach (or pass) State Pension Age.

In 2016 the Committee for Employment & Social Security started to look into the issues related to 'Longer Working Lives'. The Committee is due to report back to the States by the end of 2017 with suggestions about what could be done to support older people who wish to continue working.

During 2016 we met a wide range of people and had in-depth discussions about the challenges that people have been facing, and might face in the future. Having reviewed what people have said, the Committee formulated a set of draft proposals. These were used as a basis for consultation from 15th June-14th July 2017. 

The draft proposals can be found in the downloads section on this page.

We are now reviewing and considering your responses. A Policy Letter will be drafted for submission to the States by the end of 2017.

Should you require any further information, please contact us by emailing or call 01481 732546




Closed: 14th July 2017
