Opportunities and Support for all

What can MLAs do to ensure that those people who have taken early retirement prematurely or have been made redundant can be directed to opportunities or given support?

Many of these people are too young for a pension and are not entitled to any benefits as they have savings.  They are now economically inactive and live from their savings which will eventually run out.  Those in this situation are not counted in unemployment statistics and are not entitled to any benefits.  This situation is unsustainable and needs to be addressed.

One way would be to make it easier to set up and run a small business.

What do you think? Are you or have you been affected in a similar way?

What advice would you give to someone in this position?
