1 Nov 2006 United Kingdom Savings, Pension Reform, Pensioners & Retirement, Advisers
Consumers don't trust the financial services industry to a run low-cost retirement savings scheme in their best interest, Which? can reveal today. "Personal Accounts" are set to be introduced in 2012 to encourage employees to save for their retirement. Details of who will be running the schemes are expected to form part of a White Paper later this year. Ahead of this decision, Which? surveyed the public on who they would trust to run it. The poll of more than 500 people found the public don't believe the private sector is the best place to manage this savings scheme. The scheme will be primarily aimed at low to medium wage earners to increase their overall pension savings and employees will be enrolled into the scheme automatically. Workers will contribute 4% of their earnings into the scheme and this will be topped up with 3% employer contributions and 1% tax relief.
