Briefing Notes

Briefing Note 34 - Pension reform: is there consensus?

The Government set out its plans for pension reform in its May 2006 White Paper Security in retirement. The PPI has taken stock of the level of consensus in the pensions policy community on the Government’s proposals. 

The PPI mapped 24 organisations’ responses to the Government’s White Paper. These include charities, unions, pension providers, and representative bodies for consumers, business, and the pensions industry.

This analysis provides a partial snapshot and should not be over-interpreted: it is intended to highlight the current state of opinion on pension reform and how this has shifted since the last PPI stocktake, taken in October 2005.

This Briefing note discusses the results in relation to working longer, state pension indexation, means-testing, state pension age, personal accounts, charges, automatic enrolment and risk.
