Savers short-changed £40,000 due to quirk in the auto-enrolment calculation
NOW: Pensions
1 Apr 2019 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment
Analysis by NOW: pensions has revealed that savers could be £40,000 worse off in retirement due to the way auto-enrolment minimum contributions are calculated. From 6 April minimum contributions will rise from 5% to 8%, but auto-enrolled savers paying minimum contributions will not be saving the full 8% because of the change to the lower qualifying earnings threshold.

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.
