Knowing the exact financial situation of elderly households is essential to the current debate on social security reform, particularly regarding the public pension on which retirees depend most. Although often lumped together, the elderly population is quite diverse−in fact, financial disparities are greatest among households with elder members. We examine the current income, expenditure and wealth situation of the so-called standard elderly household now featured in the public pension debate−retired married-couple households.
