Women and Pensions 2016 survey launched today
Every 3 years, we carry out research on the impact of changes within the world of pension saving and the effects these changes have on women as pension savers. The survey launched today looks at confidence and empowerment of female pension savers, exploring attitudes and beliefs about planning for retirement.
While the survey is aimed at “Women and Pensions”, we are aware that many factors highlighted in the survey, which influence saving amongst women, also affect other genders. We therefore welcome views from all genders within the world of pension planning.
Michelle Cracknell, Chief Executive of the Pension Advisory Service said “We know that women face significant barriers to achieving a good retirement income; on average lower levels of income throughout their working life, impact of career breaks and carer responsibilities and lower levels of confidence around financial products.
Women and Pensions survey’s conducted by TPAS have previously focused on knowledge, whereas this latest survey looks more specifically at women’s attitudes, beliefs and rationale for financial decision making. The results of this survey will help us to really appreciate what women need from the pensions world, so that they can plan their pension provision confidently.”
