More stats about ill health in mid to late 60s
A report by the Women's Royal Voluntary Service (WRVS) has provided more evidence for the '68 is too late' campaign's contention that most people will already be suffering ill health by the time they will be expected to retire in future.
On page 31 of the very detailed report it says that 58% of UK residents aged between 65 and 74 have "a long standing illness or helth problem".
Stats from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) demonstrate that healthy life expectancy for most people is 69 for women and 67 for men.
