Theresa May MP, Home Secretary, sets out the case for a radical overhaul of the pensions system. She reflects the view of many in the pensions profession that the misguided policies of the past decade have taken a heavy toll. Occupational pensions are in sharp decline, the proportion of employees with defined benefit schemes has also fallen dramatically, while for over 12 million jobs there is no pension provision. Mrs May explains the steps now needed to reverse the trend.
Author Charles Cowling explains that not only are too few individuals saving, or saving enough; but even for successful pension schemes in the public and private sectors, the story is of soaring, possibly unsustainable, costs. He explains how the pensions system can be overhauled and future cover for the retired be secured. Clear steps are set out for three pillar reform.
