Only third of British private sector workforce has company pension; Thousands working into their 70s

Only a third of the British private sector workforce has a company pension and even before ageing hits the country as it has already in Japan and Germany, thousands of people are already working into their 70s. One in eight women continues working until past the age of 70 according to official figures while the ratio for men is lower at one in ten. In 2010, there were 3.2 people of working age supporting each person in retirement in the UK. Without any changes to the current old age pensions system, this ‘old age support ratio’ would drop to 2.0 by 2051. Even for those who do have a company pension, the average ‘pot’ would buy a pension worth just £1,400 a year.
