Our project began on the 4th February 2008 and it formally ended in July 2010. 

We spent the first 2 months of the project reading a lot about older people and money, and preparing and organising our focus groups.

We completed ten focus groups bewteen early and late Summer, 2008.

We then spent 2 - 3 months considering the data from the focus groups, and devising a strategy for the in-depth interviewing of couples.

In all, we have interviewed ninety older people in depth about money and money management.  These interviews began in December 2008 and concluded in August 2009.  It then took us several months to fully analyse all the focus group and interview data that we have collected. 

The statistical anlaysis of the dataset, the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, began in the Summer of 2008, and was completed in late Summer 2009.

The main research on goverment policies took place between mid 2009 and mid 2010.

We will continue to run the web survey even though the project has ended.  We are planning to analyse the contents in the early part of 2012. 

We have spent most of late 2010 and 2011 writing up and disseminating our findings from this project.
