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.

PPI’s response to the Budget proposals on Freedom and Choice
At Budget 2014 the Chancellor announced sweeping reforms of the pensions tax system to introduce greater flexibilities around how savers can access their pensions in retirement.
The PPI will be holding an event for Supporting Members, hosted by The People's Pension, on Monday 12th May 2014, where the Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, David Gauke MP, will give an overview of the consultation and the areas where they are seeking input from the industry. For more information about the event please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PPI will also be responding to the Treasury consultation (closing on 11th June 2014) in due course and will be exploring the potential implications of the Budget proposals in our research plans for 2014-15. If you would like to discuss the Budget proposals in more detail with a member of the PPI team please contact Mel Duffield at email@example.com.
