Material and Social resources throughout the life course has cumulative impact at old age. An individual utilizes these resources in varied ways to attain her/his goals. Even though material resources decline with aging, financial satisfaction increases with age. Older people will have a greater chance of having a family caregiver than their previous generations – in spite of the declining fertility – due to better chances of their caregiver's survival. The study concludes that new uncertainties and global risks threaten the well-being of the older people.
