New pensions model from the EOC offers state pension of up to 160 a week
New pensions model from the EOC offers state pension of up to 160 a week
Equal Opportunities Commission
3 Apr 2006 United Kingdom State Pensions, Pension Reform, Equality
New research into pensions policies, commissioned by the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC), has found that targeting state support at those least able to save – parents, carers and the low paid – could deliver a pensions system which lifts people out of poverty and offers everyone the chance of an adequate income in retirement. The costing analysis, carried out independently for the EOC by the Pensions Policy Institute, shows that the EOC's proposed pension policy has a similar cost to the state as proposals from the Pensions Commission and lower than the Citizen's Pension. However, the EOC's model, by being better-targeted towards those most in need, can over time deliver a target income of up to £160 a week, compared to £130 for the Pensions Commission, and the Citizen's Pension flat-rate £109.

Equal Opportunities Commission
7 Nov 2005 United Kingdom Pension Reform, Equality
According to new research from the Equal Opportunities Commission, people are angry and concerned at the existing pension system and are showing clear support for one that delivers independence and equality. A vast majority of people (94%) thought that women should have their own individual pension rights and not rely on their husband or partner. Nearly six in 10 people agreed that National Insurance contributions should rise by 1% to give those caring for children or caring for others the same state pension rights as those in paid work.
