Research update – A group that will never retire

Research from Friends Provident suggests that a new growing group of individuals will never retire out of choice. Aged between 55 and 64 years, these so-called Bridge Careerists have a desire to keep on spending, maintain their status in society and to undertake work they want to do. The Lasting lifestyles report says that around 53% of the 7.6m aged between 55 and 64 years currently fall into this category, but that this is likely to grow to 64% out of a possible 8.1m by 2020.
