Better Pensions Charter

Better Pensions Charter: Building a consensus for better pensions

A charter to create an adequate, affordable and fair pensions system

It’s almost 20 years since the Pensions Commission proposed reforms to the UK pension system. Although, as a result of those reforms, more people are eligible for the state pension and are saving for retirement in the workplace, too many are falling far short of being on track for a good retirement income.

Achieving a new consensus for reform is essential for bringing about the changes needed to address the UK’s under-saving crisis. This charter signifies a commitment from the pensions industry, stakeholder groups and policymakers to support a framework that will put pensions policy in the UK on a footing which will enable the UK’s ageing society to thrive in retirement.
