Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Another good measure of serious (but not extreme) poverty is HDI

Huh!? HDI is an average that tells little about wealth distribution, and thus the level of poverty, especially that of pensioners. HDI is composed of life expectancy (an average itself), literacy and school enrollment (says absolutely nothing about pensioners' income), and GDP per capita (which again is an average itself). HDI is not at all useful here.
