Report from the Economic Security for Women in Retirement inquiry

'A husband is not a retirement plan'

 

The Senate Inquiry into the Economic Security of Women in Retirement has found that if action is not taken now, women currently aged 25-29 will still face a less secure retirement than men of the same age when they retire in 2055.

The Inquiry's final report has been released today and provides 19 recommendations that, if implemented, would narrow the gap between men and women's retirement security.

The Inquiry found that Australia's retirement system disproportionally rewards the working lives of men over women. From their first day at work, Australian women face a structural disadvantage in being able to achieve a safe and dignified retirement.
