Future Well-Being of the Elderly

Future Well-Being of the Elderly

Conference organized as part of the QICSS International Conferences

Around the world, the economic conditions of the elderly are changing rapidly. On one hand, we are seeing the new elderly reach retirement with significant financial assets, in particular among households where both spouses have extensive labor market experience. On the other hand, transformations in the workplace imply that employer pension plans are vastly different from what they were in the past, leading retirees to face potentially more risks – and more complex decisions – than they did. Adding to these factors, trends in population health are mixed, some forces indicating that the future elderly will be healthier while others would suggest more years spent in worse health. With governments beginning to feel the heat from these mounting pressures, and societies – including employers offering retirement saving programs – looking to adapt, this conference aims to shed further light on various dimensions of the well-being of the future elderly population.
