New pensions minister Ros Altmann has outlined her priorities in her first public statement since entering Government.
Altmann says her key focuses will be the state pension, auto-enrolment and safeguarding pension freedoms.
She says: “As our population ages, it is more important than ever to help, encourage and empower people to plan and prepare for their later years.
“I will take forward work to bring in the new state pension, help millions more to be enrolled into good quality workplace pension schemes, and safeguard new freedom and choice as to how people access their savings.
“My priorities are clear: to strengthen British pensions, improve later life incomes, and protect the pensioners of today and tomorrow.”
