Tackling the Gender Pension Gap
Prospect
Aug 2019 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment, Equality, Pensioners & Retirement, Savings, State Pensions
Prospect has published updated research looking at the scale of the gender pension gap in the UK, based upon an analysis of responses to the DWP's Family Resources Survey. The analysis found that between 2016-17 and 2017-18 the percentage difference in pension income between male and female pensioners that makes up the gender pension gap increased from 39.5% to 39.7%. In the report, Prospect sets out a number of recommendations for the Government and industry to help reduce the gender pension gap, such as introducing an additional state pension credit worth £2 a week for each year that someone is not working because they are caring for a child under the age of 12.

The New Social Contract: Empowering individuals in a transitioning world
Aegon Retirement Readiness Survey 2019
AEGON
May 2019 United Kingdom, WORLDWIDE Annuities and Income Drawdown, Longevity, Savings, State Pensions
Aegon has published its eighth annual Retirement Readiness Survey, in which it analyses how prepared individuals are for retirement and recommends a New Social Contract for retirement based upon its findings. The 2019 survey reveals that 68% is the proportion of current income workers think they will need in retirement but only 25% of today's workers believe that they are on course to achieve their retirement income. The survey also highlights that there has been little improvement in retirement readiness among workers as measured by the Aegon Retirement Readiness Index (ARRI), which in 2019 was 6.0, only slightly higher than the score of 5.2 recorded in 2012.

The International Longevity Centre UK (ILC) has published a report based on research from the EXTEND project that compares reforms to extend working lives across five European countries. According to the report, modelling to simulate the effects of recent pension system reforms suggests that moves toward DC pensions will lead to increased inequalities in pension income and wealth particularly among less educated women.

Are half a million people paying unnecessary tax on their state pension?
Royal London Policy Paper 33
Royal London
Apr 2019 United Kingdom State Pensions, Taxation
Royal London's latest policy paper has found that a large number of people working past their state pension age could be paying unnecessary tax because they have failed to take up the option of deferring their state pension until they stop work. In 2017 there were around 1.1 million people in the workforce aged 65 or over, of whom roughly 950,000 were combining paid work with drawing a state pension. More than half of these (around 520,000) were earning enough to take them over the tax threshold, meaning that the whole of their state pension was taxed.
