Report on Pension Adequacy: vulnerable pensioners need our attention, says AGE

The Council of EU ministers of employment and social affairs has released a report on the adequacy of pensions including a statement by AGE Platform Europe. The report is an update of the 2012 Pension Adequacy Report and highlights the key challenges older persons face in attaining their rights to live in independently and to social protection. A key chapter focusses on women, whose risk of poverty is much higher than men’s. AGE welcomes the report and calls for more concrete actions to be taken to improve pensions of older women.
