An introduction to the UK Pensions system

Following feedback from past attendees the 2020 Knowledge Sharing Seminars are even better!  

  • The seminars form an ideal introduction to how the UK State and private pension systems work.
  • We will share our team’s years of research experience and extensive knowledge of the current UK pensions system.
  • The seminars will cut through the jargon and are delivered from the PPI’s unique independent and unbiased perspective.


In light of the current situation we have had to change our KSS sessions to fit to a virtual delivery, making them more interactive and easier to follow.


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.
