The National Pensioners Convention (NPC) in the UK organises a Pensions’ Action Day on 6 April 2009. After 100 years of the state pension, Britain still has at least 1 in 4 older people living below the official poverty line, and millions more struggling with the rising costs of living. The pensioners of tomorrow also face an uncertain future, as pension funds have lost a lot in the economic crisis and employers reduce the generosity of their occupational pension schemes. That is why all generations need a decent state pension. NPC calls on the government to immediately raise the basic state pension above the poverty level for all pensioners, and increase it every year in line with either average wage rises or inflation.
