    Abstract

    Increasing the age pension qualifying age is one mechanism by which governments of developed nations are attempting to manage increasing costs associated with population ageing. In Australia however, there are a number of groups within the population who will be affected differently by a recent decision to increase the qualifying age to 70 by the year 2035.

    In this research brief we use scenario modeling and analysis to explore the effects of changes to the age pension qualifying age, and in light of changing life expectancies for Indigenous Australians in the Northern Territory, determine the effects on years in 'retirement’ and compare these effects to the non-Indigenous population.
