A guide to the UK Pensions system

“I've recommended that any new starter on our team attend this course, I think it was brilliant and wish I had had the opportunity to attend when I started last year. This was an excellently presented overview. I really liked that it also provided context as to how the system has changed.”

Policy Assistant at ABI (PPI Silver Members)

The PPI has established itself as an authoritative independent commentator on policy on pensions and retirement provision. The PPI conducts research and analysis of the implications of pension reform proposals on state pensions, private pensions and on the interaction between them.

The PPI’s Knowledge Sharing Seminar is an ideal introduction to how the UK state and private pension systems work and current policy debates and are delivered from the PPI’s independent and unbiased perspective.

Bespoke seminars can be designed which cover specific areas in more detail.

Who should attend?

New starters in the world of pensions policy or those who have specialist knowledge in one area of pensions but are looking to gain a more general understanding of the whole pensions landscape.

The seminars form an ideal part of new employees inductions and are often utilised by the Department for Work and Pensions for their new analysts from within the Private Pensions directorate as part of their induction.
