A widening gap: The financial benefits of delaying retirement

Deborah Schofield, Emily J. Callander, Simon J. Kelly, Rupendra Shrestha

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


The Australian Government is seeking to encourage people to work past the age of 65 in order to maximise their retirement savings. Even though there is an important relationship between people working past the age of 65 and wealth accumulation, there is little published research on the topic.
This report seeks to measure the benefits of prolonging participation in the workforce by examining the relationship between work and wealth accumulation.
