White Paper measures will offer better protection to pension schemes
Aon
24 Apr 2018 United Kingdom Legislation, Pension Reform, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR), Regulatory Bodies - the Pensions Regulator
A survey conducted by Aon has revealed that two-thirds of pensions professionals believe that defined benefit pension schemes will be better protected as a result of the proposed reforms contained in the recent DWP White Paper. In addition 44% of respondents agreed that they would prefer that the proposed revision of TPR's Funding Code resulted in the Code becoming either a bit or a lot more prescriptive, although only 7% of respondents specifically supported making the Funding Code a lot more prescriptive.

Mind the state pension gap – latest data shows men still get a better deal than women
Mind the state pension gap – latest data shows men still get a better deal than women
Which?
21 Apr 2018 United Kingdom Equality, State Pensions
An analysis of the DWP database of UK benefits information carried out by Which? has revealed that significant differences exist in the value of the state pension payments received by men and women. It found that the average man receives £153.86 per week, while the average woman receives £125.98 per week. The analysis also indicates that those who have qualified to receive the state pension since the new system was introduced in April 2016 are better off than those who claim their pension under the old system, and that there are significant variations in the pension entitlements of expatriates.

Venturing to Retire
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.

Subjective expectations of survival and economic behaviour
IFS Working Paper W18/14
Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS)
16 Apr 2018 United Kingdom Annuities and Income Drawdown, Longevity, Savings, State Pensions
According to a new report from the IFS, as individuals are given more control over saving for retirement and use of pension wealth, their ability to plan for the future is increasingly important. The report found that around 65% of individuals could perceive that an annuity, priced according to average survival chances, offers an unfairly low income. The report also showed that deferral of the state pension, a choice analogous to annuity purchase, is rarely taken up despite being offered at a favourable rate.

Increasing Pension Contributions Alone is not a Panacea to Securing Good Retirement Outcomes for DC Members
Increasing Pension Contributions Alone is not a Panacea to Securing Good Retirement Outcomes
JLT Employee Benefits (JLT EB)
13 Apr 2018 United Kingdom Administration, Investment - General
Research from JLT Employee Benefits indicates that the losses incurred from being in a poor quality default fund negate the progress made by increasing contributions. According to the analysis, the projected value of savings for a 22-year-old starting to save into a pension with 5% contributions using a poor quality default fund is almost identical at age 55 to what it would be if that person had maintained 2% contributions and chosen the best available default fund.
