Retirement and Superannuation Policy
Retirement and for the most part superannuation policy is a key issue in this coming election. I am interested in hearing your thoughts on key issues in the debate as well as researched and informed discussion on both sides, including:
Should we commit to keeping the Retirement age at 65. A number of arguments exist and its largely to do with the capacity to work at or above 65, for instance we are living longer but that may not necessarily mean that we can work for longer. On the other hand it is argued that if it is raised to 67 then kiwis will still likely get the same amount as people did the day it was put to 65.
Should the pension be income-tested?

It is a good step forward to first make some clear commitments. I believe that the first would be to come to a decision on whether in any case whether we continue with the development of UBI or not that we will keep the retirement age and the eligibility for pension (or increase in UBI) at 65.
