Incentives, shocks or signals? Employment effects of increasing the female State Pension Age

| 09:30 - 11:00
Location: Nuffield Foundation - 28 Bedford Square, London WC1B 3JS

At this event, IFS researchers will present the results of new research, funded by the Nuffield Foundation and the IFS retirement saving consortium.

Since April 2010 the earliest age at which women can claim a state pension has been increasing from age 60. A crucial issue for both the incomes of those affected by the reform, and for the impact of the reform on the public finances, is the extent to which this increase in the state pension age has led to an increase in employment rates. This research uses data from the first two years of this change coming into effect to estimate the impact of reaching the state pension age on:

  • The economic activity of those women directly affected by the reform;
  • The employment of partners of those women directly affected by the reform;
  • The public finances.

Registration will take place from 09:30 to 10:00 and the briefing is expected to take place between 10:00 and 11:00. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
