Budget 2021 - Towards a Fairer Society for an Ageing Population

Towards a Fairer Society for An Ageing Population

While annual budgetary processes have seen welcome increases, in recent years, to the State pension and secondary supports questions remain about whether these supports are adequate to meet people’s needs in the absence of a detailed analysis of the cost of ageing.  Age Action urges the Government to commission research on the cost of ageing to ensure that there are sufficient resources available to meet the needs of an ageing population.  Details of Age Action's recommendations to Government for Budget 2021 are available below.
