Will Britain take the next pension contribution increase in its stride?

Royal London
Mar 2018 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment
Royal London has published its twentieth policy paper, entitled "Will Britain take the next pension contribution increase in its stride?", which looks at the first phase of automatic enrolment and the mandatory contribution rates rise to a combined 5% in April 2018 and to a combined 8% in April 2019. The paper argues that these rises will not lead to a rush to opt out of workplace pensions as a number of factors will combine to keep pension scheme membership at a high level.
