7. Altenbericht Deutschland

Am 11. November 2016 ist der 7. Altenbericht veröffentlicht worden. Als Bundestags-Drucksache 18/10210 ist er allen Interessierten zugänglich.

Der Titel: „Sorge und Mitverantwortung in der Kommune – Aufbau und Sicherung zukunftsfähiger Gemeinschaften“.

Der Altenbericht erklärt, welche Voraussetzungen vor Ort gegeben sein müssen, damit ein gutes Leben im Alter möglich ist. “Mit Blick auf Gesundheit, Pflege, Wohnen und Mobilität hat die zuständige Sachverständigenkommission herausgearbeitet, wie die Kommunen gesellschaftliche Teilhabe und eine möglichst lange selbstständige Lebensführung älter werdender Menschen sicherstellen können. Dabei hat die Kommission auch Defizite und Verbesserungsmöglichkeiten benannt sowie Empfehlungen an die Politik ausgesprochen.” (aus KDA-Forum Seniorenarbeit NRW, siehe LINK)

Gender Pension Gap

“Fair income opportunities for women and men: reducing the gender gap in pensions

Inequalities in access to economic resources in old age are immense, and women pensioners face higher risks of poverty in old age as compared to men despite the fact that prohibition of di erential treatment en- titles women and men to equal conditions in respect to old-age pensions. (European Commission, 2013a; Frericks and Maier, 2008; Ginn, 2004). Assessing gender inequalities in pensions and addressing them is crucial, as women constitute the majority of the ageing population due to their higher life expectancy. Furthermore, the consideration of the gender gap in pensions constitutes a logical extension of concerns with wage inequalities. Nevertheless, the gender gap in pensions has only recently gained the attention of academia and policy-makers (Adami, Gough and Theophilopoulou, 2013; European Commission, 2013a; Folbre, Shaw and Stark, 2005).” http://eiges.europa.eu
