What limits workplace pension participation amongst threshold adults (aged 25-39 years)?
What limits workplace pension participation amongst threshold adults (aged 25-39 years)?
Pensions Policy Institute (PPI)
Jul 2018 United Kingdom Savings
The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) has published a research report exploring what limits workplace pension participation amongst young adults aged between 25 and 39. The report finds that people in this age range limit their participation in workplace pension saving because they feel the need to establish themselves as adults before they engage with pension saving. According to the findings, the process of becoming established as an adult is subjective but often includes various financial and social factors such as income, home ownership and major life events.

Fiscal Sustainability Report
Fiscal Sustainability Report
Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR)
Jul 2018 United Kingdom Longevity, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR), State Pensions, Taxation
The latest Fiscal Sustainability Report from the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) reveals lower spending on state pensions across most of the projection period, reflecting slightly accelerated increases to the state pension age and lower mortality assumptions, partly offset by the assumption of a higher triple lock premium. Spending on state pensions is projected to rise over the long term, from 5.0% of GDP in 2022-23 to 6.9% of GDP in 2067-68, driven largely by demographic trends.
