Senior Living n Happy retirement


They say that life after work can be the best years of your life – and a survey has showed that today’s pensioners are certainly making the most of it…


A quarter of those surveyed say that they are fitter and


healthier since giving up work, and many are also able to report better relationships with their partners and family. Almost nine out of ten of say that their retirement has met their expectations or they are happy with how it has turned out. The survey was carried out by Prudential and sought


responses from people who have retired in the past ten years – a crucial time given that it was the height of the financial crisis. With so much more time on their hands, 35 per cent of


those surveyed say that their life is more adventurous now than they ever could have hoped for while at work. Nearly two in five people thought they would have missed


work more than they do, and one in four said they wish they had retired earlier. Just 11 per cent said they wished they had been more active


or found a job earlier in their retirement. The survey was commissioned to mark the tenth


anniversary of Prudential’s annual research project into retirement and was based on interviews with a cross section of people who have retired since 2008 gave up work. Kirsty Anderson, a retirement expert at Prudential, said:


“Over the last 10 years we’ve studied the finances, plans and aspirations of people as they reach retirement, so it’s really good to now find out that for many people retirement has provided them with a new lease of life.”
