Funding the Future Life: The implications of a longer life
Funding the Future Life
Pensions Policy Institute (PPI)
20 Nov 2018 United Kingdom Annuities and Income Drawdown, Automatic Enrolment, Longevity, Part-time, Self-employed and Contract Workers, Pensioners & Retirement, Savings, State Pensions, Technology & Systems
The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) has published a report entitled "Funding the Future Life", looking at how individuals might fund a long and healthy life. In the report, which is the second in its "The Future Life; the implications of a longer life" series, the PPI argues that greater flexibility is needed in the retirement landscape to reflect the move from a traditional three-stage life to a multi-stage life, as evidenced by its finding that 37% of 18-39 year olds would like to work part-time when they transition to retirement. It recommends four potential measures that could be taken by stakeholders including Government and providers to address socio-economic inequalities around living long and healthy lives, such as providing financial products that both facilitate saving for retirement and allow for withdrawals to be made to help with more immediate financial goals such as buying a house, starting a business or retraining.

RSA
18 Apr 2018 United Kingdom Lifetime ISA, Part-time, Self-employed and Contract Workers, Savings, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Taxation
The RSA has published a report revealing that, even though the number of people who work for themselves has grown by 40% since 2000, only 17% contribute to a personal pension and this level of under-saving, which appears to be steadily worsening, could expose thousands to hardship in retirement. The report also sets out recommendations to tackle the issues, which include clarifying the stance of the Lifetime ISA, pursuing auto-enrolment via accountancy software providers, and establishing a Pensions Passport so people can carry over pensions from employment.
