Our TILDA partnership helps us understand our older adults.

Through Irish Life’s efforts in preparing our members for retirement we have extended our partnership with TILDA whose overarching aim is to "make Ireland the best place in the world to grow old".

What is TILDA?

TILDA collects information on a wide range of lifestyle aspects including: health, economic and social circumstances from people aged 50 and over. Through the latest wave of data collection we now know many things about the older Irish generation.

Irish Life joined TILDA as a founding partner in 2006. TILDA has become a powerful benchmark for longitudinal studies globally. Its relevance has increased with the ageing profile of the Irish population and a strong desire for research-informed policymaking.

Income is positively associated with quality of life in older age

It is no surprise that there is a correlation between income and the quality of life; the higher the income the better quality of life. 3 in 10 people with a low income say that ‘shortage of money stops them from what they want to do’ compared to the 1 in 10 with a high income. 

Older adults are the fabric of their communities

With more time at their disposal older adults are able to engage more with their community and offer their time, services or even spend some time on themselves enjoying social, leisure activities. 

We are eager for the new phase of the partnership which will allow us to develop a deeper understanding of population needs, looking at the future of work, saving behaviour and retirement and pension needs in Ireland.

We continue to put our customers first and ensure a tailored approach to individual needs.
