Shocked and struggling: retirement reality in the 21st Century
Attitudes to retirement among those around retirement age
National Consumer Council (NCC)
Mar 2004 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement
This research reveals that many people entering retirement feel let down and disillusioned by the state pension. The researcher says those who tried to save extra for their retirement feel powerless because their pensions and investments have not lived up to their promises. Only those lucky enough to have a final salary pension feel really confident about their future.

No nest egg
The attitudes of younger consumers to saving for retirement
National Consumer Council (NCC)
Oct 2003 United Kingdom Savings
This research reveals how young people on low incomes face significant barriers to saving that put any prospect of a comfortable retirement at severe risk. The researcher says they have little confidence that their saving will pay off and their trust in government on pensions is so low that any moves to force them to save for retirement would be unpopular.

Savings and Pensions Opinion Poll
Survey of individuals underpinning a response to the Green Paper
National Consumer Council (NCC)
Apr 2003 United Kingdom Savings, Pension Reform
Saving incentives are a big issue identified by this research, which is being used to underpin the researcher's response to the Pensions Green Paper. With current incentives largely based on tax relief, benefitting those in the higher tax bracket more than those on lower incomes, the NCC argues that simple, fair and attractive incentives would stimulate pension saving more effectively.
