22 Feb 2017 United Kingdom Equality, Automatic Enrolment
Research from Citizens Advice has revealed that almost 106,000 working people are not being auto-enrolled into a pension because their earnings come from more than one job and that 70% of those affected are women. The research found that a total 250,000 people have several jobs paying under £10,000 a year, meaning they do not qualify for auto-enrolment. However, two in five of these people have a combined income exceeding £10,000, but still do not qualify for auto-enrolment under current rules.

Aug 2016 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement, European Union issues, Advisers, Savings, Taxation
Research from Citizens Advice has revealed that 9% of people using the pension freedoms to access their savings experienced unforeseen tax problems such as unexpected tax deductions. This percentage rises to 30% for people who accessed their whole pension pot at once. The research also found that 29% of all consumers and 32% of consumers with pensions worth over £100,000 are transferring their savings into bank accounts, which may become increasingly common due to uncertainty over financial markets and annuity rates following Brexit.
