Andrew Kail, CEO, Legal & General Retail Retirement, said: “With the state pension age rising to 68, and the prospect of planning for an income well into our 90s, many older workers simply can’t afford to retire.
“It’s therefore vital that we move towards a job market in which older people are not overlooked.”
Cheryl continued: “It’s all very well the Government pushing up our retirement age, but then how are we going to get a job? That’s the trouble.”
Several years ago, Cheryl joined the Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) campaign group, which protests against the lack of information given about changes to the state pension age for women.
