New support service for people approaching retirement

A new membership organisation has been launched to support people approaching or in early retirement. The creation of Heyday comes in response to research by charity Age Concern which revealed 58 per cent of people in their fifties and sixties who are currently working want to work in some capacity beyond retirement.With news that 64% of people find it impossible to get a new job within 10 years of retirement, Heyday is launching the UK’s biggest ever survey into the issue. The Have Your Say survey is inviting over 10 million people to share their views on a number of topics including work, ageism and pensions.Ailsa Ogilvie, Director of Heyday said: “The Heyday generation is part of a ‘quiet revolution’ taking place in the UK. They want to make the right choices to prepare for a very different kind of retirement to that experienced by their parents and grandparents. They want to create a new life for themselves and their families, but they need to find the financial and lifestyle framework that will allow them to do this. Through the ‘Have Your Say’ survey, Heyday will listen to what Boomers want out of work and modern retirement to help them reinvent retirement in the same way they invented the teenager in the sixties and seventies.” Heyday will offer members access to a range of services designed to help them make informed choices on key issues affecting their future including wealth, health and employment.
