Following the announcement on 26 September of the review of private pension legislation, the Government is publishing its consultation document.
Minister of state for work and pensions Ian McCartney says: “The Government is committed to helping people build up decent pensions for their retirement. That means the public and private sectors working together effectively.
“The private pensions sector is just as important as the state sector, and we are committed to encouraging take-up of occupational and other private pension provision. That means making sure complexity and costs are kept to a minimum, whilst also ensuring that pension scheme members are properly protected.”
