Everyone should be able to retire with dignity
Aegon's purpose is to help people achieve a lifetime of financial security, both up to and throughout retirement. But without fundamental data and insights into the challenges people face when preparing for retirement, it's impossible to inspire change. Which is why, for the past nine years, we have been conducting the Aegon Retirement Readiness Survey. This survey covers 15 countries, spanning Europe, the Americas, Asia, and Australia.
The resulting reports are designed to raise awareness of the retirement-related risks faced by workers and retirees and provide insights and recommendations for individuals, employers, and policymakers. They are a collaboration between the Aegon Center for Longevity and Retirement (ACLR) and nonprofits, Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies® (TCRS) in the United States and Instituto de Longevidade Mongeral Aegon in Brazil.
For the past three years, Aegon has been calling for a New Social Contract where there is solidarity among social partners to develop sustainable retirement systems that rebalance responsibility in a way that everyone has the ability to retire with dignity and no one is left behind.
The New Social Contract
The New Social Contract: Age-Friendly Employers explores the vital role of employers in helping workers successfully navigate their working lives and prepare for retirement, a role that has become even more crucial and precarious amid the pandemic.
