Making our superannuation fairer

From The Panel, 4:49 pm on 6 December 2018

The New Zealand Initiative's released a report on the country's superannuation, stating that our pension age needs to rise and it should be linked to health expectancy.

The report points out that New Zealand is one of the few countries that has a non-means-tested pension.

We'll be living longer and retiring later so the system will need to change soon, the report suggests. Jenesa Jeram from the initiative explains the report.
