Debora Price will discuss the challenges posed for societies, families and individuals in the realm of money and later life as a result of the intersection of four things: ageing populations, policy changes across various domains, changing health and cognition, and digital ways of managing money. She will highlight the growing complexities of everyday lives for older people and financial welfare in later life, arguing that these are matters of profound personal importance requiring attention from researchers and policymakers.
Debora Price is Professor of Social Gerontology at the University of Manchester. She started her working life as a barrister but was drawn into academia by concern over pensioner poverty as a result of rapid social changes in family life. Her research centres on finance over the life course, especially pensions and poverty, financing later life, financial services for an ageing society and household money. She is particularly interested in the political economy of pensions, and how pensions and social security systems influence household and family relationships.
