To accommodate an ageing population people will need to work for longer, but to what extent is this happening in reality and to what extent do barriers to working longer include poor health?
Related concerns include the future affordability of pensions and rising cost of health and social care but more generally the strategic issue of maintaining or preferably improving economic prosperity in coming decades.
Drawing on research commissioned by the Prime Ministers Strategy Unit in 2009 and undertaken by Professor Les Mayhew from Cass Business School, this joint ILC-UK /Institute of Actuaries event will attempt to get to the heart of debate by considering the economic impact of increased longevity and healthy life expectancy on the UK economy.
Using extensive data sources, among the illustrative examples it will consider are:
* Whether increasing longevity is being matched by increases in healthy life expectancy
* The extent to which poor health is a barrier to working for longer
* The role prevention/health promotion could play in securing a healthier future and improved economic prospects
* Whether planned increases in state pension age will deliver the expected large savings in public expenditure and if there are offsetting costs that need to be factored in
* Supply-side barriers to progress including socio-economic inequality and the role of societal factors such as obesity and mental health
* Wider demographic considerations and consequences including population size and immigration.
