"We aim to be the most-trusted authority and the go-to source for over-55s"

55/Redefined is the UK’s champion for the over-55s. We’re a disruptor. We’re here to challenge the status quo. We reject the idea that the most dynamic part of life is before 55. We advocate for age diversity, positivity and inclusion across all areas of life.

As a population, we’re living longer than ever and currently have an outdated approach towards ageing and life after 55 that no longer serves us. The concept of a pension and retirement was coined in post-war times in the 1940s. This means we are still living with a mindset that has been around for more than half a century.

It’s our mission here at 55/Redefined to embody a movement and champion change at a societal and policy level. We powerfully reject the common stereotypes and prejudices that create barriers to what one can achieve over 50. Whilst people accept getting older means getting wiser, we believe that it also means being bolder and more dynamic in our decision making and demanding more from life.

We are for the vibrant, thrill-seeking, healthy, young-minded, future-focused, on-the-pulse, passionate, fun-loving, who have that you-bet-your-ass-I-can-do attitude who want to be a part of it. With information and insight on careers, finance, legal and lifestyle inspiration for the affluent 55-plus demographic, we aim to be the most-trusted authority and the go-to source for over-55s.

The 55/Redefined Best Partner Promise

As the UK’s champion for over 55s, our Partner Promise recognises products and services – such as financial, legal, insurance, education and lifestyle – that set out to make life simpler and more seamless for you, so that you can spend more time living and doing the exciting things.

We hand-pick and vet each business that is awarded the 55/Redefined Partner Promise Badge based on our own vigorous assessment benchmarks, analysis and regular evaluations. Each partner we work with is selected because they share our values, including the following:

Champions of anti-ageism, diversity and
inclusion across all areas

Exceptional quality of customer service and experience

High standards of trust, transparency, and customer value for money

Hold trust, transparency, and value to the
customer at the centre

ESG Statement

With our guiding principle to embrace the opportunities of life at 55 and beyond, we understand that a thriving natural environment and a healthy social environment are the foundations upon which people's lives are truly enriched. Without these foundations, it is not possible to fulfil 55/Redefined’s mission to unlock the social and economic benefits of age inclusivity.

In fact, support of ESG-related initiatives and 55/Redefined’s core social mission are intrinsically interlinked, including addressing climate change, promoting innovation, and supporting economic revitalisation through combatting ageism in employment. As we grow, we will continue to develop scalable initiatives which realise a more sustainable and fairer society for all, supporting the goal of a decarbonised society. Our partner and product decisions are, and will continue to be, based on the recognition that the protection of the global environment is essential.
