Government policy deals crippling blow to pensions
Government policy deals crippling blow to pensions
Saga
10 Sep 2012 United Kingdom Savings, Pensioners & Retirement, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Annuities and Income Drawdown
Figures from Saga have revealed that actions by the Treasury and the Bank of England have resulted in a cut of more than a third to the private pension income of many retirees. Saga argues that more than 325,000 people with capped income drawdown plans have suffered a negative impact from quantitative easing policies and Government rule changes. As a result, a person seeking the same income they could have received from a £100,000 pension pot in August 2009, would now require an extra £40,000 - £50,000 to make up the shortfall.
