Helen Morrissey, pension specialist at Royal London, said:

“Today’s stats show the employment gap between men and women continues to decrease. This is particularly the case at older ages and reflects the fact that many women need to work longer as their state pension age increases. However, overall this is a trend to be welcomed as more women will access pension savings via auto-enrolment and build their financial resilience through increased earning power.”
