The Government has announced that it will undertake a work programme to establish a shared understanding of the evidence on financial incentives to save for retirement following the introduction of the Government’s pension reforms. The work programme will assess the potential costs, benefits and other impacts of measures that could affect incentives to save for retirement.

This Briefing Note summarises the PPI’s research on this issue to date and highlights areas where there are still gaps and where clarity is needed from the Government. This paper formed the basis of discussion at a PPI seminar in March 2008. The seminar was sponsored by B&CE Benefit Schemes and the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).
