Retiring early? You may not want to bet your life on it.

The study looked at Shell employees who retired at age 55, 60 and 65, between 1973 and 2003. It covered approximately 3,500 people over the 30-year period. Basically, the mortality rate of those who retired at 55 (adjusted for health factors) was twice that of their still-working colleagues.

Alarmed Shell Pensioner

And Mr. Donovan, you seem to have a direct line to Wiseman. Perhaps you could ask him to confirm or otherwise the rumour I have picked up a few weeks ago that Shell in this credit crisis has borrowed money from the Pensionfund or made the Pensionfund invest in some projects. If that is correct, I would like to see the opinion of Mr Wiseman on the ethics of this. No doubt it is within the law, but is it ethical?

Shell Live Chat Posting by a disillusioned Shell Pensioner

POSTING ON “SHELL LIVE CHAT” BY A SHELL PENSIONER, Thursday 11 December 2008

I just received a letter from Shell Pensionfund (dutch) that the coverage has dropped to 85% (Dutch legal limit is 105%). About a year ago it was around 170% I believe.

Some amateurs have been gambling with the fund and now there is a huge shortfall. I still have the letters of the past where they were congratulating themselves with the good management and strategies… And no doubt cashing in big bonusses. Why did nobody convert shares to bonds when there was this enormous surplus? That would be good husbandry. But like other Shell functions, it always has to be better and more. read more

Not Everyone Will Live to 110

There was more evidence of pensions in crisis last week, when U.K. telecom provider BT Group secured agreements with its trade unions on cutbacks to its £34.4 billion ($50.9 billion) plan. Other companies such as Royal Dutch Shell are making similar moves. Rising life expectancy is one of the factors they cite.
