Savers short-changed £40,000 due to quirk in the auto-enrolment calculation
NOW: Pensions
1 Apr 2019 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment
Analysis by NOW: pensions has revealed that savers could be £40,000 worse off in retirement due to the way auto-enrolment minimum contributions are calculated. From 6 April minimum contributions will rise from 5% to 8%, but auto-enrolled savers paying minimum contributions will not be saving the full 8% because of the change to the lower qualifying earnings threshold.
