Not enough to live on: The topic of pensions and old-age poverty will be a big topic in the federal election campaign. A study by the Bertelsmann Foundation shows that the number of those affected is increasing dramatically. She calls for more commitment to the risk groups.

One in five new pensioners will be at risk of old-age poverty in 2036. That is the result of a study that the Bertelsmann Foundation presented on Monday in Gütersloh.

Single women are particularly affected

Overall, the at-risk-of-poverty rate in the age group of 67-year-olds will rise in the coming years from 16 percent today to 20 percent. Single women, people without vocational training and the long-term unemployed are particularly hard hit. According to simulation calculations, there will be a particularly dramatic increase in the proportion of women who will become dependent on state benefits because their income will not be enough for life. According to the study, their share will increase from 16.2 percent today to 27.8 percent in 2036.
