It also highlights that there has been little improvement in retirement readiness among workers as measured by the Aegon Retirement Readiness Index (ARRI), which in 2018 was unchanged from 2017 at 5.9, and only slightly higher than the score of 5.2 recorded in 2012.

Annual funding statement analysis 2018: A review of DB pension schemes with valuation dates between September 2017 and September 2018
Annual funding statement analysis (Tranche 13)
The Pensions Regulator (TPR)
May 2018 United Kingdom Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Regulatory Bodies - the Pensions Regulator, Scheme Issues & Trends
The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has published the findings of its analysis of the expected positions of DB pension schemes with valuation dates between 22 September 2017 and 21 September 2018 (Tranche 13). According to TPR's modelling, schemes undertaking valuations at 31 March 2018 will have marginally improved funding levels and deficits compared with those reported three years ago. The Regulator highlights, however, that the deficits reported have not improved to the extent that would have been anticipated across the inter-valuation period, meaning that schemes' current recovery plans are unlikely to be on track and that deficit reduction contributions will need to be increased accordingly.
