With nearly 20 percent of the European population being over 65 years old, the accessibility of payment services, increasingly cashless, is a question that should not be ignored.

In this blog, Anne-Sophie Parent, Secretary General of AGE Platform Europe, explains the consequences of the digitalisation of payment services for senior citizens. In addition, she introduces the initiative of AGE Platform Europe and the Netherlands' central bank to launch a reflection to improve payments’ accessibility.

AGE Platform Europe is a European network of non-profit organisations which aims to voice and promote the interests of senior citizens in the European Union and to raise awareness on the issues that concern them most.
