Briefing Note 87 - PhD Series 1: The impact of automatic enrolment in the UK as at 2016

The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) funds and supports a number of PhD students researching into areas of distinct policy relevance to pensions in the UK. The PhD Briefing Note Series has been set up to allow analysis undertaken as part of the PhD to be fed into public debate and reach a wider audience than would normally be the case, and to encourage researchers to consider the policy implication of their findings.

Hayley James is a PhD student at The University of Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing (MICRA). Her Thesis looks at the impact of automatic enrolment into workplace pensions on individual decision making, based on qualitative research methodology.

This Briefing Note considers what is known about the impact of the introduction of auto-enrolment into workplace schemes on pensions saving in the UK so far, as at the end of 2016.
