Elderly Struggle With Cost Of Living
According to Age UK 47% of pensioners say they are “just getting by” financially. In the recent study, 11% of people said they were finding it difficult or “really struggling” to cope.
The study involved face to face questions with 1,258 people. Worryingly, 19% suggested they would cut back on heating this winter in order to manage their money.
These figures are concerning as it shows a rapid decline in the ability of the elderly to cope just as the baby boomers are becoming pensioners.
