As retirement specialists, keeping our finger on the pulse of retirement insight is important to us. Now in its third year, bringing retirement into focus examines the attitudes and experiences of adults across Ireland as they move to and through retirement. How does generation, gender or geography shape a person’s retirement journey? How are people planning for their futures? How does planning impact a person’s retirement experience? Throughout the year we spoke with over 5,600 people to get answers to these questions and more.
