A Good Retirement: Public attitudes to the role of the state and the individual in retirement

Demos have provided new research documenting public opinion on the role of the state and individual in retirement in achieving financial security in later life.

The research answers key questions on:

  • What do people define as a good retirement?
  • How confident are they that they will achieve this?
  • Who is actually responsible for achieving a good retirement – the state or the individual? What combination of the two?
  • How can a good retirement be achieved?
