Welcome to the Pensions Policy Institute
The PPI is an educational charity which provides non-political, independent comment and analysis on public policy on pensions and the provision of retirement income in the UK. We publish regular research reports, briefing notes and hold policy seminars on a wide range of topics.
I hope that you find the information on the PPI's website helpful. Please get in touch if you would like to get more involved with the PPI.

Transition to Retirement Report - 'How complex are the decisions that pension savers need to make at retirement?'.
The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) published How complex are the decisions that pension savers need to make at retirement?, a report that explores the range of potential decisions people have approaching, at the point of, and during retirement, and how these are likely to change once the new flexibilities for savers with Defined Contribution (DC) pensions are introduced in April 2015.
