Improving engagement with pension decisions: The results from three randomised controlled trials
Improving engagement with pension decisions: The results from three randomised controlled trials
The Behavioural Insights Team/Pension Wise
Oct 2017 United Kingdom Pension Wise
The Behavioural Insights Team has published a report which details three randomised controlled trials (RCTs) run in collaboration with the UK Government’s Pension Wise service (PW), and pension providers. The aim of the trial is to increase engagement with the Pension Wise service and, in turn, the pension market. Conclusions drawn from the trial include that the provision of both an online and phone service is an effective way to promote engagement and that the current wakeup packs provide so much information that it makes it difficult for customers to make informed decisions regarding their pension pots.
