PPI Closing the gap: the choices and factors that can affect private pension income in retirement

The research considers the impact that increasing pensions contributions, opting out of pension saving, working longer, shopping around for the best deal on an annuity or being in a pension scheme with low charges can have on an individual’s defined contribution private pension income.

Around 50 people attended the event which was chaired by Mark Hyde Harrison, Chairman of the NAPF.

Chris Curry, Research Director at the PPI set out the main findings of the report.  Please click here to view the report and here for the PPI presentation.
