Housing, Healthcare and Retirement
Retirement is increasingly seen as a central part of the financial planning for the benefit of old age. Thereby people are striking a balance between money now and money later. Housing and Care play an important role there, in their own way. Home ownership is both a stable place to live as a nest egg for old age. Many people worry whether they are able to meet their health care needs in old age. If households with both housing, care and retirement are engaged in financial planning for retirement, an integrated approach can offer advantages.
The topic of the interrelationships between housing, healthcare, and retirement is part of the broader social dialogue concerning the Dutch pension system. Netspar has also made it a top priority in its research agenda. It will mailnly look at the significance of the individual (individual retirement income, customization and choice).
