We’ve partnered with The Wisdom Council to explore the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on the over 55s – the baby boomer generation. The result – the Great Retirement Study. 

The Great Retirement Study surveyed more than 2,000 people aged 55 to 75. Here are some of the main headlines:

  • 61% have been impacted by the cost-of-living crisis, with 11% saying it’s had a significant impact on them.
  • 63% have seen a drop in disposable income.
  • 57% haven’t been able to save at all or as much as they had previously.
  • 35% have taken money from savings to meet rising costs.
  • 57% expect their financial situation will get worse over the next 12 months.
