Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA)
Jul 2018 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment, Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies), Savings
The PLSA has also published research revealing that 80% of individuals are unsure whether they are saving enough for retirement, while 51% wrongly believe that the minimum pension contribution level under auto-enrolment is the Government's "recommended amount" to save. According to the research, less than 50% of all savers are on track to achieve an adequate income in retirement, and for those with only DC pensions, only 3% of savers are likely to achieve this outcome.
