The Underpensioned: Defining the Gender Pension Gap



The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) is today releasing an Independent research report, 'The Underpensioned: Defining the Gender Pension Gap'.

This report, kindly sponsored by NOW: Pensions explores the impact of factors that contribute to inequality in retirement outcomes between men and women, in order to provide greater clarity on how to define the Gender Pension Gap (GPG) and support effective policymaking decisions to narrow the gap.

The PPI first carried out research segmenting the impact of the various causes of the Gender Pension Gap (GPG) in 2019. This report updates this segmentation with more recent data, as well as exploring the context of inequality in retirement outcomes between men and women in greater detail.

This report is kindly sponsored by:
